Cypress Lake’s Litigation over Android Devices Continues with a New Suit Against Dell

March 22, 2018

Cypress Lake Software, Inc.’s litigation targeting “devices that come with, or can be upgraded to, Google’s Android operating system, version 7.0 or greater” continues, with the NPE filing a separate action against Dell (6:18-cv-00138) focused on such devices. The new complaint follows the dismissal of an earlier case against Dell, accusing the company of infringement through the provision of computing devices running Microsoft’s Windows 10. Cypress Lake represents that it had served infringement contentions in that first Dell case that focused on both sets of accused products, prompting Dell to object to inclusion of the Android-based devices. After Cypress settled with Microsoft in August 2017, the NPE continued its campaign, suing BlackBerry, HP, LG Electronics (LGE), and Samsung, over such devices.
