Actions 
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/09/13 --  e.Digital Corporation
(OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and
future-defining patented technologies, announced today that it has
filed thirty-nine new patent infringement lawsuits in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of California.  
Handal & Associates, on behalf of the Company, has recently filed the
lawsuits against entities that e.Digital believes infringe the
Company's U.S. Patent No. 5,839,108 ("the '108 patent") covering the
use of flash memory technologies. The patent is part of e.Digital's
Flash-R(TM) patent portfolio.  
Among the list of Defendants are Toshiba America Information Systems,
Inc., Kingston Technology Company, Inc., Seagate Technology LLC,
Western Digital Corporation, Intel Corporation, Micron Technology,
Inc., and PNY Electronics, Inc., dba PNY. The '108 patent relates to
the way that modern day flash memory devices store and manage data.  
"We have broadened our focus to now include the suppliers of Flash
memory in our litigation strategy under the '108 patent," said Fred
Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. "The '108 patent is valid
through March of 2016 and, as a result, we intend to enforce our
patent rights to the '108 patent for years to come. In particular, we
feel very strongly that the named suppliers are and have been
directly infringing the '108 patent and we seek to recover damages
for the unauthorized use of our technology. We are pleased with the
progress Handal & Associates has made in continuing to monetize our
Flash-R patent portfolio and leveraging their comprehensive
understanding of the portfolio to broaden our licensing
opportunities," concluded Falk.
