SAN FRANCISCO – A Sunnyvale corporation is suing a French corporation over claims of patent infringement in regards to high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) technology.
Lattice Semiconductor Corp. filed a complaint on Feb. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Technicolor SA, Technicolor Inc., Technicolor USA Inc., and Technicolor Connected Home USA LLC, citing patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Lattice Semiconductor Corp. acquired several patents that are essential to its HDMI technology and continues to license them. Plaintiff allegedly suffered damages as a result of defendant's infringement of its patents. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly infringed several patents registered to the plaintiff by at least, making, using, supplying, distributing, importing, exporting, selling and/or offering for sale HDMI-compatible products and systems.
The plaintiff seeks a judgment that the defendant infringed on its patents, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, any attorney's fees and costs and any other relief the court deems just and proper. It is represented by Stephen S. Korniczky and Martin R. Bader of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP in San Diego, and by Laura M. Burson of Los Angeles and Deepali A. Brahmbhatt of Palo Alto.
