Blue Spike Files Fresh Wave of Cases after Getting Hit by Kyocera DJ Action

February 17, 2017

Blue Spike LLC has filed another round of lawsuits in its long-running digital watermarking campaign, accusing Element Technologies (6:17-cv-00097), Giada Technology (6:17-cv-00098), NVIDIA (6:17-cv-00096), Razer (6:17-cv-00099), Roku (6:17-cv-00100), and Skystream Technologies (6:17-cv-00101) of infringing seven patents (5,745,569; 7,159,116; 7,475,246; 8,171,561; 8,538,011; 8,739,295; 8,930,719) through the provision of various Android-based mobile devices and set-top media players. These latest cases come a week after Kyocera filed a declaratory judgment (DJ) action (3:17-cv-00262) against the NPE, which had moved to dismiss its affirmative infringement suit against the company without prejudice just one day before (6:16-cv-01142). Kyocera’s complaint seeks a judgment of non-infringement for the ‘569 and ‘719 patents, which Blue Spike had asserted against the company’s Android smartphones.
