Freeny Family Adds Disney and Printer Makers to Wireless Hotspot Campaign
- March 10, 2017
The three sons of late inventor Charles C. Freeny, Jr. have added seven new suits to their wireless hotspot campaign. Six of the latest complaints filed by Bryan E. Freeny, Charles C. Freeny III, and James P. Freeny allege infringement of four wireless communication patents (6,490,443; 6,806,977; 7,110,744; 7,301,664) through the provision of multi-function wireless printers made and sold by Brother (2:17-cv-00183), Konica Minolta (2:17-cv-00184), Lexmark (2:17-cv-00185), Oki Group (Oki Data) (2:17-cv-00186), Ricoh (2:17-cv-00187), and Xerox (2:17-cv-00188). Disney (2:17-cv-00155) is also accused of infringing the ‘443 patent alone through its MagicBand wireless wristbands, which are used for authenticating guests at Walt Disney World.
