More Mobile Device Makers Added to Advanced Video Technologies’s Campaign
Lenovo, LGE, and Nikon are the newest defendants in Advanced Video Technologies LLC’s (AVT’s) long-running litigation campaign. The entity filed nine suits between 2004 and 2012, and then began filing new litigation in June of this year. The recent suits assert the same patent seen in previous cases in the campaign, and it relates to a semiconductor chip with MPEG video compression and decompression (5,781,788). Mobile devices made and sold by defendants are accused of infringing the patent-in-suit.
