In Video Conversion Campaign, LG Electronics Exits, HTC Moves to Dismiss, and Amazon Sued
- July 4, 2016
On the heels of a dismissal with prejudice in a prior case against LG Electronics (1:16-cv-00128), Virginia Innovation Sciences, Inc. (VIS) has added a suit against Amazon (1:16-cv-00861) to the litigation campaign that it began roughly five years ago. The new complaint asserts ten patents from a 25-patent family generally related to converting compressed video content received by a mobile phone from a wireless network into a video signal format ready for display on a larger external display (e.g. a television). Amazon’s Kindle, Fire, and Dash Button are the accused products. The list of prior defendants also includes Groupon, Open Table, and Samsung, with a case against HTC (2:16-cv-00060), filed in February 2016, the only other active suit in the campaign.
