SAN FRANCISCO – A Texas-based tech company recently filed a federal suit accusing Sunvalleytek International of Fremont of infringing on its patent regarding a wireless mutliplex data transmission system.
Magnacross, a high-tech company in McKinney, Texas, filed the patent infringement suit Oct. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
As quoted in the complaint, “The invention in the 304 Patent relates to methods and apparatuses for the wireless transmission of data through a communications channel from at least two local data sensors to a data processor.”
Plaintiffs stated that the patent was registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on July 12, 2005. Therefore, “Magnacross possesses the exclusive right and standing to prosecute the present action for infringement of the 304 Patent by defendant.”
In its complaint, Magnacross claims Sunvalleytek infringed on the 304 patent by offering for sale a similar apparatus for wireless transmission of data in digital and/or analog format in Delaware and other areas of the country.
Magnacross is seeking compensation for losses caused by this patent infringement “in an amount that by law cannot be less than would constitute a reasonable royalty for the use of the patented technology, together with interest and costs fixed by this court.”
To prove the right to file suit in this judicial district, Magnacross stated that Sunvalleytek is subject to this court’s jurisdiction because the company was incorporated in California. Plaintiffs also stated that because Sunvalleytek has used its infringement to receive income in California the company falls under the jurisdiction of this court.
In addition to requesting a jury trial, the complaint requests pre-judgment and post-judgment interest on damages caused by defendant’s infringing activities and other conduct named in the complaint.
