Universal Electronics Files Patent Infringement Action Against Universal Remote Control

Universal Remote Control (URC) reported that the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted its request for attorneys fees in a pending patent infringement action filed by Universal Electronics (UEI). This litigation began in March 2012 when UEI accused URC of infringing four of its patents. Over the course of the proceedings, which concluded with a jury trial and verdict in URC's favor on all issues tried, all of the claims that had been asserted against URC were dismissed on multiple grounds. The fourth patent, in addition to being declared unenforceable by the Court, was invalidated by the Patent Office in an Inter Partes review. The net result is that all four UEI patents have now been held invalid. On March 10, after briefing, the Court found in URC's favor and granted URC's fee request for those patent claims found exceptional, first finding that the litigation was motivated at least in part by UEI's desire for 'payback' for URC's successful competition in the marketplace.
