SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 --   e.Digital Corporation
(OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and
future-defining patented technologies, announced today that it has
filed a new round of patent infringement lawsuits in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of California.  
Handal & Associates, on behalf of the Company, has filed three
separate new lawsuits against SanDisk Corporation, Philips
Electronics North America Corporation and Grundig Intermedia GmbH
(Grundig) who are makers of infringing products. Also named in the
Grundig suit are two of Grundig's distributors, GBS North America
L.L.C. dba Grundig Business Systems and Smoltz Distributing, Inc.  
These new filings bring the total number of cases filed by the
Company in recent months to six. In its complaints, the Company
asserts that products made and sold by the defendants infringe the
Company's U.S. patents covering the use of flash memory technologies,
which are part of e.Digital's Flash-R(TM) patent portfolio.  
"Our intellectual property is valuable and we are committed to
protecting and enforcing the Company's rights to the technology. We
will therefore continue to identify infringement wherever and
whenever we can," said Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital
Corporation. "Our patents are essential to many consumer electronics
products and our inventions have opened the door to the widespread
use of flash memory in many of today's popular electronic products.
The strength of our fundamental intellectual property has been
validated through licensing, settlement and reexamination by the U.S.
Patent and Trademark Office. Our strategy is to leverage this
knowledge and experience to streamline, accelerate and maximize our
patent licensing efforts. Hats off to our legal team for their
continued persistence and hard work," Falk concluded.
