Monument’s Wireless Switch IP Hits MediaTek and Seeed over IoT Development Kit

July 29, 2017

MediaTek (3:17-cv-04232) is a defendant in the first case to be added to the litigation campaign of Monument Patent Holdings, LLC subsidiary Wireless Switch IP, LLC after its transfer from the Eastern District of Texas to the Northern District of California. The NPE agreed to the move of its earlier cases against Acer, ASUS, and Lenovo and has now sued MediaTek, together with California-based Seeed, over the same two patents (7,356,351; 7,647,070). The patents generally relate to mobile devices that can shut off network connectivity while still providing “local functionality”. MediaTek and Seeed are accused of infringement through the provision of a product they co-developed, LinkIt Assist 2505, an Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables development kit that includes hardware with a switch to turn Wi-Fi functionality on and off.
