Samsung’s “QLED-Type” TVs Targeted in First Rensselaer Polytechnic Suit Since Troubled 2018 Case

November 17, 2019

In a new District of New Jersey complaint, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) has accused Samsung (2:19-cv-20097) of infringing two patents generally related to using nanoparticles of a certain size and composition to manufacture semiconductor products. The products accused in the case are Samsung’s “QLED-type televisions in the United States that contain Quantum Dot semiconductor nanoparticles”. RPI’s suit is the plaintiff’s first enforcement action since a case over patents exclusively licensed in 2011 to Dynamic Advances, LLC, an entity affiliated with Erich Spangenberg, has become embroiled in multiple disputes—involving Fortress Investment Group LLC and Marathon Patent Group, Inc.—over the assets’ true ownership.
