As Existing Defendants Contest Venue, Cypress Lake Adds Two More to Its Campaign

May 13, 2017

In the middle of a fight over venue in a round of suits that it filed last fall, Cypress Lake Software, Inc. has added two more to its campaign, one each against Fujitsu (6:17-cv-00299) and ZTE (6:17-cv-00300). The complaint against Fujitsu largely tracks those in the 2016 suits against Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, LG Electronics (LGE), Panasonic, Samsung, and Toshiba, asserting six patents in two families (8,661,3619,423,9239,423,938; and 9,423,954 in the first and 8,781,299 and 8,983,264 in the second) against the defendants for the manufacture and sale of computers and tablets running Microsoft’s Windows 10. Infringement allegations in those complaints focus on the use of Miracast (a standard allowing wireless display to a second device) and Snap Assist (a mechanism for resizing windows). The complaint against ZTE, however, alleges infringement of only the ‘299 and ‘264 patents through the provision of devices that use version 4.4.2 of Google’s Android operating system. That shift is no surprise after a review of the briefing related to the existing defendants’ motions to change venue.
