Gellyfish (sic) sues Intel, Dell, HP, Sony…

Intel logoA company with the unlikely name of Gellyfish Technologies LLC  wants to sting Intel, Dell, HP, Sony, Asus, Lenovo, Alienware, and Power Support because it’s alleged they breached a patent it owns.

The patents in question are 6,336,614 called Conformable Computer Hand Pads, issued by the US Patens and Trademark Office on the 8th of January 2002 and 6,963,486, a similar patent registration. The patents relate to ergonomic hand rests incorporated into notebooks.

All the defendants, including Intel, are accused of infringing the patent by providing specialised laptop computer products that are based on the patent invention.

Gellyfish wants a jury to award costs and damages for breaching the patent. Gellyfish Technologies has sued a number of companies previously over these patents including Acer and Gateway.
