Cedar Lane Strikes New Defendants as Two-Year Anniversary of Litigation Approaches
In April, Cedar Lane Technologies Inc. passed 100 defendants sued in its first litigation campaign, which it launched in May 2019, after filing new suits against Avision (6:21-cv-00415), Bang & Olufsen (6:21-cv-00429), Broadlink (6:21-cv-00433), Hisense (6:21-cv-00436), Gosund (6:21-cv-00443), Hitachi (Hitachi Kokusai Electric) (6:21-cv-00423), HTC (6:21-cv-00420), Pantum (6:21-cv-00424), Skyworth Group (6:21-cv-00437), SONOFF (6:21-cv-00449), TCL (6:21-cv-00408), and Trip.com (6:21-cv-00426) in the Western District of Texas and Haier (1:21-cv-00528) and Whirlpool (1:21-cv-00529) in the District of Delaware. The plaintiff asserts 13 patents in overlapping sets, one of which is new to litigation; the defendants are accused of infringement through a wide variety of products and services: devices and systems that support the Amazon Echo and Google Assistant platforms, web platforms that feature interactive graphical maps, and various other devices (e.g., camera systems, multi-function peripherals (MFPs), smartphones, TVs, VR headsets, wireless printers and scanners, etc.). Roughly 120 defendants have now been sued in this campaign, while the number of asserted patents (each received either directly or indirectly from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV)) is approaching 50.
