Blue Spike Pivots Back to Mobile Devices and TVs with Latest Filings

February 3, 2017

Blue Spike LLC has added new cases against LeEco (LeMall) (6:17-cv-00063), Toshiba (6:17-cv-00053), and Vizio (6:17-cv-00060) to its long-running digital watermarking campaign. After accusing Juniper Networks (6:17-cv-00016) of infringement through various enterprise networking products in a January 6 complaint, the NPE’s latest filings shift the focus of the campaign back to consumer electronics. The three defendants are alleged to infringe multiple combinations of 27 different patents through the provision of smart TVs, with Toshiba laptops and smartphones sold by LeMall also at issue. Blue Spike’s complaint against Toshiba, filed on January 26, was soon followed by a victory for the company in another campaign, when a Delaware jury issued a finding of non-infringement in a case brought by Intellectual Ventures LLC.
