Dynamic Data’s International Campaign Continues to Expand in Delaware
The international litigation campaign of Dynamic Data Technologies LLC continues to expand in the US, with the NPE filing suit against Lenovo (Motorola Mobility) together with Qualcomm (1:19-cv-01806) in the District of Delaware. The new case joins other complaints transferred there from the Eastern District of Texas (including cases filed separately against Alphabet (Google) and Qualcomm, both with other defendants and alone) and filed originally in Delaware (including separate suits against AmLogic and Brightcove). Five patents, generally related to image and video processing, are asserted against Lenovo and Qualcomm, one of them new to litigation, bringing the number of patents-in-suit closer to three dozen. Infringement allegations target Lenovo “cell phones, tablets, and other computing devices that contain integrated circuits designed, manufactured, sold and/or offered for sale by Qualcomm with video encoding and/or decoding functionality”. At issue are image/video processing, encoding, and decoding features, including those that support H.265 and/or VP9 video codecs.
