"Huawei Reaches Deal to Settle E-Watch Phone Patent Suit," Law36001/27/2017 | Law360
A Texas federal judge signed off Friday on a confidential settlement that resolves allegations China-based telecom giant Huawei infringed e-Watch Inc. patents covering cellphone camera technology.
E-Watch sued Apple Inc. and 10 other electronics makers in December 2013, saying the companies’ phones, including Apple’s iPhone 4S, violated its patented system, which does things such as capture and transmit images via camera phones.
Many of the companies have settled already, including Apple, ZTE (USA) Inc., Sony Mobile Communications (USA) Inc., Kyocera Communications Inc., BlackBerry Ltd. and Sharp Corp. The patents at issue are U.S. Patent Numbers 7,365,871 and 7,643,168. The lead case is e-Watch Inc. et al. v. Apple Inc. et al., case number 2:13-cv-01061, and the instant case is e-Watch Inc. et al. v. Huawei Device Co. Ltd. et al., case number 2:13-cv-01076, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
