Techno View IP Files Another Suit Asserting 3D Video Game Patents

May 18, 2017

Techno View IP Inc. has filed a second case asserting a three-dimensional video game patent (7,666,096) at issue in the case the NPE brought against Facebook subsidiary Oculus VR last month. The new complaint accuses Sony (1:17-cv-00569) of infringing the ‘096 patent, as well as its later-issuing family member (8,206,218), through provision of its PlayStation 4. Techno View IP’s pleading also introduces a third patent (9,503,742), not related by prosecution to the other two, claim 1 of which the NPE alleges reads on certain video coding and display standards (H.264 and ISO/IEC 14496-10 specifications). The complaint does not assert the ‘742 patent but reserves the right to amend to add the patent after Techno View IP offers Sony a license under FRAND (“fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory) terms. The NPE also pleads that it has determined that various TDVision foreign patents “read on the H.264 and ISO/IEC 14496-10 specifications, including issued patents in China, Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong”.
