Aegis 11 Expands Campaign by Two Defendants and One Replacement Patent

September 25, 2020

On the heels of an Alice setback in that District of Delaware cases that it filed in June 2019, Aegis 11 S.A., an affiliate of Sisvel International S.A. (d/b/a Sisvel Group), has added Northern District of Georgia suits against Funai (1:20-cv-03890) and Hisense (1:20-cv-03891) to the campaign. Last year, Aegis 11 hit BelkinCommScope (ARRISRuckus Wireless), NETGEARRoku, and TCL (TTE Technology) with separate cases targeting devices compatible with the 802.11ac wireless networking standard. The defendants challenged one of the three patents-in-suit as patent-ineligibly directed to the abstract idea of “generating and using random numbers for the purpose of mutual authentication”. Earlier this month, District Judge Richard G. Andrews agreed with a magistrate recommendation that that patent be invalidated. Now, Aegis 11 has asserted the remaining two patents in its Georgia complaints, adding a third, all of them originally sourced from LG Electronics (LGE). The NPE has also moved to amend its June 2019 complaints to assert the new patent.
