Liberty Patents Hits Dell, Separately Unloads Against Host of Products Built Around ARM Architectures

October 18, 2020

Liberty Patents LLC continues to roll out new litigation over three patents from the over 130 assets acquired from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) at the very end of 2019. This past week’s complaints hit Broadcom, Fujitsu, Hon Hai Precision Industry (Sharp), MediaTek, Qualcomm, and STMicroelectronics in a single complaint (6:20-cv-00970), as well as Dell on its own (6:20-cv-00944), with both pleadings filed in the Western District of Texas. The -970 complaint targets each defendant over the provision of devices “that include processors with the capability to ignore reading the tag field when a sequential instruction is to be loaded”, suing them all jointly because each accused product uses “the processors and related processes based on common ARM architectures”. Dell is accused of infringing the other two patents in the campaign through the provision of computing devices that support PowerShare and ChromeOS auto-update features.
