Display-Side Camera Campaign Hits LG Electronics
- June 30, 2016
- Mobile Communications and Devices, New Patent Litigation
Corydoras Technologies, LLC has filed suit against LG Electronics (2:16-cv-00687), asserting seven patents (7,778,664; 7,945,236; 7,945,287; 7,996,037; 8,024,009; 8,731,540; 9,197,741) generally related to various aspects of a mobile communications device that displays a mirror image of an object taken from a camera facing the direction of the display. The first case in the campaign, filed against Samsung, was dismissed in mid-April, after the court held a claim construction hearing that also appears to have focused on various invalidity challenges to the patents’ claims, and the second case, filed against Apple, remains open in initial pleadings. Phones and tablets with a display-side camera are at issue in the campaign.
