M·CAM, Inc. releases Patently Obvious report on DownUnder Wireless LLC's U.S. Patent No. 6,741,215 referenced in DownUnder Wireless, LLC v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc. et al. lawsuit
Charlottesville, VA – June 4, 2010 –– M·CAM, Inc. released its Patently Obvious report today on U.S. Patent No. 6,741,215 which DownUnder Wireless LLC claimed in a November 20, 2009 lawsuit that Samsung Electronics America, Inc., Sprint Nextel Corp., Walmart Stores Inc., and several other parties infringe upon. This is the most recent in a string of litigation DownUnder Wireless, LLC had filed against cell phone manufacturers, providers and retailers. On May 27, 2010, nearly 20 of the defendants filed a joint motion to dismiss the suit after agreeing to cooperate with DownUnder Wireless, presumably paying a licensing fee in the process. This report focuses on patents of interest which predate and are concurrent to the DownUnder Wireless patent, including public–domain alternatives.
The patent named in the lawsuit describes a safety antenna for mobile devices that reduces the amount of electromagnetic radiation subjected to a user.
M·CAM's Patently Obvious is a weekly report providing visibility into potentially unconsidered alternatives, including art in the public domain, to patent holdings across a variety of technology areas.
