SAN JOSE – A Washington corporation has filed suit against a consumer electronics manufacturer over allegations it infringed a patent relating to the protection of electronic devices and systems from unauthorized use.
SoftVault Systems Inc. filed a complaint on April 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Sony Dadc US Inc. alleging patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between June 19, 2001, and July 15, 2003, it was issued the '868 and '765 patent and was damaged when these patents were infringed by the defendant.
