Dale Progress Ltd. has opened up a second front in its sole litigation campaign, begun late last year in Texas, with a new set of Delaware cases against BMW (1:19-cv-00253), Fiat Chrysler (FCA, Ferrari) (1:19-cv-00254, 1:19-cv-00255), Ford (1:19-cv-00256), GM (1:19-cv-00257), Nissan (1:19-cv-00259), Subaru (1:19-cv-00260), TATA (Jaguar Landrover) (1:19-cv-00258), and Zhejiang Geely (Volvo) (1:19-cv-00261). Each new complaint, and each operative complaint in the prior suits, now asserts two related patents broadly pertaining to remotely displaying content from a “portable device”. At issue throughout are technologies used to connect a smartphone to an in-vehicle infotainment system, including displaying an adapted version of the smartphone’s interface on a dashboard screen.
