Mitsubishi Prevails Before Federal Circuit in Patent Infringement Suit

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

DLP TVs Do Not Infringe Cheetah Omni Patents

Washington, DC -- One business day after argument, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit summarily affirmed the judgment of the Eastern District of Texas in favor of Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. The affirmation came in a patent litigation brought by Cheetah Omni LLC, a patent licensing company. The decision confirms that Cheetah’s attempt to apply patents for optical communications to Mitsubishi’s DLP televisions was without merit.

“This is a terrific victory for Mitsubishi,” noted Yasushi Moriyama, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. “Mitsubishi felt strongly that the lawsuit had no merit and therefore defended the case vigorously.

“The company is very satisfied that Judge Davis of the Eastern District of Texas understood that the patent had no applicability to Mitsubishi’s televisions and issued a favorable claim construction that led to a stipulated judgment. The company is also pleased that the Federal Circuit ruled quickly in Mitsubishi’s favor.”
