Chris Rourk Comments in ‘Asia IP’ on Patent Litigation in Texas

February 22, 2021 | Mentions

Jackson Walker partner Chris Rourk spoke with Asia IP, a leading international IP news journal, about two patent infringement suits filed by Stingray IP Solutions in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on January 29, 2021. In the suits, Stingray claimed that Samsung Electronics violated eight of its Internet of Things (IoT)-related patents.

In the article, Chris notes that there are cases brought by non-practicing entities that assert meritless patent claims for nuisance settlement amounts.

“While Stingray appears to be such a non-practicing entity, it would require a more in-depth analysis to determine whether the patents being asserted against Samsung in the litigation are valid, or if they have claims that are directed to anything of commercial value,” Chris noted.
