Blackbird Technologies Kicks Off First Litigation Campaign of 2020

February 10, 2021

Blackbird Tech LLC (d/b/a Blackbird Technologies) has sued HP (1:21-cv-00132) over the provision of laptops that contain either a webcam “kill switch” or a camera shutter button that disables the user’s camera. The NPE asserts three patents generally related to a security system for a personal device comprised of an isolated switch and controller that can connect and disconnect a “peripheral device” from the personal device. Blackbird Technologies pleads ownership of the patents, while currently available USPTO records do not reflect the assignment of rights away from their named inventors.
