AVT Adds Samsung to Troubled Video Chip Campaign After Appealing Previous Fee Award
- May 27, 2016
Advanced Video Technologies LLC (AVT) has filed a new case against Samsung (1:16-cv-03967), asserting the same patent (5,781,788) at issue in this litigation campaign since it began over twelve years ago. The ‘788 patent generally relates to single-chip video compression and decompression, and the accused products include Samsung smartphones, digital cameras, and camcorders. AVT’s new case comes in the wake of district court orders granting past defendants BlackBerry, HTC, and Motorola Mobility both attorney fees, the award of which is on appeal before the Federal Circuit, and costs.
