Generation of the Umlaut, and Other Special Characters, at Issue in Second Cumberland Campaign

April 21, 2018

Cumberland Systems, LLC has opened up a second litigation campaign, suing Lenovo (Motorola Mobility) (1:18-cv-00594) and Nokia (1:18-cv-00593) over the provision of smartphones using Google’s Android operating system and offering non-English touchscreen keyboards that present an alternate character selection menu after the user touches and holds a character. A single patent, generally related to “dynamic” text generation, is asserted in the new complaints. Cumberland received the patent in the same transaction that gave rise to its May 2017 password management campaign.
