Deshodax Shifts from Smartphone Autofocus to Vibrate Mode in Delaware Cases Against BlackBerry, Samsung, and Sony

July 27, 2017

Deshodax LLC has added three more defendants to the Delaware leg of its litigation campaign over a single patent (7,307,398), generally related to changing the operation of a “motor system” based on inputs received in an image processor. Earlier complaints in the campaign target the autofocus features in cameras built into smartphone cameras, but these new complaints take aim at the vibrate mode in BlackBerry’s DTE K50 (1:17-cv-01014), Samsung’s Galaxy S7 (1:17-cv-01015), and Sony’s Xperia M5 (1:17-cv-01016) smartphones. Deshodax began this campaign, as had nearly every litigating affiliate of patent monetization firm IP Edge LLC, in the Eastern District of Texas, but shifted to Delaware after the US Supreme Court’s May 22 TC Heartland decision on patent venue.
