WiLAN’s North Star Adds Three More Defendants to Sprawling Campaign

August 25, 2016

North Star Innovations Inc. has filed three more cases in a large litigation campaign primarily asserting patents in which it received rights from Freescale in October 2015. The plaintiff asserts a single patent (5,892,777), already in suit in cases filed against Amazon, Canon, GoPro, Integrated Silicon Solution, Microsoft, and Nanya, against new defendants HP (1:16-cv-00728), HTC (1:16-cv-00729), and Nikon (1:16-cv-00730). The ‘777 patent generally relates to the operation of a memory device, and the complaints focus infringement accusations on HP’s ElitePad (identifying an Elpida memory product and an Intel Atom processor), HTC’s One M9 smartphone (identifying a Samsung memory product and a Qualcomm processor), and Nikon’s SDLR Camera (identifying a Samsung memory product and Nikon image processor).
