New Delaware NPE Kicks Off International Litigation Campaign over Large Image and Video Processing Patent Portfolio

November 2, 2018

Dynamic Data Technologies, LLC, a Delaware entity formed this past April, has launched an international litigation campaign over a large portfolio of patents recently acquired from MaxLinear. In the US, Dynamic Data has sued Alphabet (Google) (2:18-cv-00466), Amazon (2:18-cv-00461), AMD (1:18-cv-01715), Apple (2:18-cv-00464), HTC (1:18-cv-10180), NVIDIA (1:18-cv-01726), and Samsung (1:18-cv-00459) so far. In its complaints, however, the NPE pleads that it has begun enforcement actions against AMD, Google, and Microsoft in China (before the Nanjing Specialized Intellectual Property Tribunal) and against Apple in Germany. Dynamic Data further pleads that it is “pursuing remedies for infringement of its patents” in an effort to facilitate the licensing of “foundational technology” in image and video processing developed by Philips, the history of which the NPE recounts in detail in its complaints, from making carbon-filament lamps in 1891 to work in the 1960s leading to patents alleged to disclose “cutting-edge video compression and transmission technologies”.
