A company called Bandspeed Inc has sued a heap of companies – see headline – alleging they’ve all infringed on two patents that it owns.
Bandspeed said in its writ – filed in the ever-popular United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division – that the firms had breached two patents – 7,027,418 and 7,570, 614. They both have the same title – Approach for selecting communications channels based on performance.
Allegedly infringing products include the Acer Aspire One D250-1515 PC; the Belkin Mini Bluetooth Adaptor; the Casio H’zOne Rock mobile phone; the Dell Wireless Bluetooth Mini-Card; the Garmin Nuvi 265T GPS device; the GN Netcom Jabra Bluetooth Headset and USB Adaptor; the HP Bluetooth Pendant Headphone; the HTC Dash 3G mobile phone; the Huawei U7519 Tap mobile phone; the Lenovo Ideapad V460 PC and so on and on in the litany.
Bandspeed wants a jury trial. Bandspeed wants damages.
