After False Start Years Ago, Cellect Reboots Campaign over Mobile Device Cameras

February 15, 2019

Colorado plaintiff Cellect LLC appears to have put an ill-fated 2013 foray into patent litigation behind it, suing Samsung (1:19-cv-00438) over 11 patents generally related to the use of “stacked complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors”. Samsung is alleged to infringe through the provision of various Galaxy smartphones and tablets, the complaint focusing on various features of those devices’ cameras (e.g., image capture, image transfer, video calling). Cellect pleads that it provided notice “of its patents, including the Asserted Patents” to Samsung through an in-person meeting in February 2014, roughly at the halfway point of its prior, short-lived litigation against HTC.
