"Apple Latest to Settle E-Watch's Camera Phone Patent Row," Law36001/20/2017 | Law360
Apple Inc. has become the latest technology giant to reach a settlement ending e-Watch Inc.’s claims that the company is infringing two patents related to cellphone camera technology, according to a document filed in Texas federal court on Friday.
In a three-page joint motion to dismiss, e-Watch and Apple told U.S. Magistrate Judge Roy S. Payne that they have reached a settlement ending San Antonio-based e-Watch’s claims alleging the technology giant infringed its U.S. Patent Numbers 7,365,871 and 7,643,168, both titled “Apparatus for capturing, converting and transmitting a visual image signal via a digital transmission system.”
"Defendant encourages and instructs its customers to use these infringing systems in a manner that infringes the patents," the complaint said.
The patents at issue are U.S. Patent Nos. 7,365,871 and 7,643,168.
The case is e-Watch Inc., et al. v. Apple Inc., case number 2:13-cv-01061, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
