IP Bridge Kicks Off a Second Litigation Campaign, This One Against Broadcom, Avago, and LSI

  • February 15, 2016

Japanese patent monetization firm IP Bridge, Inc. has launched a second litigation campaign in the US. The NPE’s subsidiary Godo Kaisha IP Bridge 1 (IP Bridge 1) has asserted five former Panasonic patents (6,197,6967,126,1748,354,726RE43,729RE41,980) and one former NEC patent (6,538,324) against Avago and Broadcom, which completed a merger on February 1, 2016 under the new Singapore entity Broadcom Limited. The suit (2:16-cv-00134) also names LSI, already a subsidiary of Avago at the time of the merger. (A “godo kaisha” is a type of Japanese corporate entity roughly equivalent to an LLC.) The new complaint accuses the defendants of infringement through the manufacture and sale of certain 40-nanometer semiconductor products (here asserting all six except the ‘729 patent) and certain ARM Cortex semiconductor products (the ‘729 patent).
