(SAN DIEGO, CA, – December 2, 2015) – e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long-standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, announced today 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. We believe the Court’s ruling is favorable to e.Digital and enhances the ability to enforce the Company’s patents against infringers.
“The Court’s ruling supports our interpretation of the claims of the patents and increases our confidence in our prospects for monetizing our novel Nunchi technology,” said Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. “This is particularly true in light of the fact that a large and growing number of cutting edge products appear to infringe our Nunchi patents,” added Falk. “We are continuing our research and innovation in the science of context awareness and look forward to additional patent applications related to our proprietary technologies,” Falk concluded.
