Pabst Launches New Campaign that Targets Digital Cameras
- June 17, 2015
Pabst Licensing GmbH & Company Kg embarked on a new litigation campaign involving multiple suits. Two patents (8,504,746, 8,966,144) are asserted against Canon, HP, Nikon, Olympus, and Panasonic, and the ‘144 patent alone is asserted against Fujifilm. This campaign is the first time that Papst has affirmatively asserted these patents, although in May of this year HP filed an action seeking declaratory judgments of non-infringement of them both. The patents relate to a data acquisition device that can be connected to a computer for data transfer, and the new suits accuse defendants’ digital cameras of infringement.
