e.Digital Corporation Receives Favorable Claim Construction Ruling Case from United States District Court Against DropCam
Dec 2 15
e.Digital Corporation announced that the United States District Court for the Northern District of California issued a favorable claim construction order in the company's case against DropCam. A claim construction hearing, also known as a Markman hearing, allows each party to advance what they believe is the inventor's intended meaning of certain terms used in the patents asserted in litigation. A Court analyzes the disputed terms, considers the arguments of counsel and issues an order construing the meaning of those terms. The patents asserted in e.Digital's case against DropCam, part of e.Digital's Nunchi® patent portfolio, relate to the way systems analyze and manage data. The company's law firm, Handal & Associates, asserted more than 50 claims from six patents against DropCam, resulting in a number of disputes over the meaning of specific terms in the patents. The company believe the Court's ruling is favorable to e.Digital and enhances the ability to enforce the company's patents against infringers.
