Elite Gaming Tech LLC v. Lenovo Group Limited

Case Summary

On August 27, 2021, Elite Gaming Tech LLC. (“EGT” or “Plaintiff”), represented by Vincent J. Rubino, III of Fabricant LLP, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Lenovo Group Limited (“Lenovo” or “Defendant”), seeking permanent injunctive reliefs and damages along with reasonable royalty among other reliefs for the alleged infringement of the United States Patents owned by the Plaintiff. This case was filed in the United States District Court in the Eastern District of Texas. 

 

The Plaintiff filed this complaint for the alleged infringement of the United States Patent No. 9,940,025 (the “’025 Patent”), United States Patent No. 7,702,847 (the “’847 Patent”), United States Patent No. 8,312,209 (the “’209 Patent”), United States Patent No. 8,631,196 (the “’196 Patent”), United States Patent No. 7,551,382 (the “’382 Patent”), United States Patent No. 7,689,785 (the “’785 Patent”) and United States Patent No. U.S. Patent No. 7,679,604 (the “’604 Patent”) (collectively, “Patents-in-suit”) owned by Plaintiff. 

 

In the complaint, the Plaintiff alleged that, “EGT has not licensed or otherwise authorized Defendant to make, use, offer for sale, sell, or import any products that embody the inventions of the ’025 Patent” and “Defendant has and continues to directly infringe the ’025 Patent, either literally or under the doctrine of equivalents, without authority and in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271, by making, using, offering to sell, selling, and/or importing into the United States products that satisfy each and every limitation of one or more claims of the ’025 Patent.”

 

Further the Plaintiff alleged that, “Defendant has and continues to indirectly infringe one or more claims of the ’025 Patent by knowingly and intentionally inducing others, including Lenovo customers and end-users, to directly infringe, either literally or under the doctrine of equivalents, by making, using, offering to sell, selling and/or importing into the United States products that include infringing technology.”

 

The Plaintiff also alleged that, “Defendant, with knowledge that these products, or the use thereof, infringes the ’025 Patent at least as of the date of this Complaint, knowingly and intentionally induced, and continues to knowingly and intentionally induce, direct infringement of the ’025 Patent by providing these products to end users for use in an infringing manner” and “Defendant has induced infringement by others, including end users, with the intent to cause infringing acts by others or, in the alternative, with the belief that there was a high probability that others, including end users, infringe the ’025 Patent, but while remaining willfully blind to the infringement.”

 

Similar claims have been made by the Plaintiff with reference to the alleged infringement of other Patents-in-suit. 

 

There are seven claims for relief laid down by the Plaintiff, one for the alleged infringement of each of the Patents-in-suit.

 

In the prayer for relief, the Plaintiff has requested the Court for permanent injunctive relief and declaratory reliefs along with an order pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 283 permanently enjoining the Defendant, its officers, agents, servants, employees, attorneys, and those persons in active concert or participation with them, from further acts of infringement of one or more of the Patents-in-Suit; an order awarding damages sufficient to compensate EGT for Defendant’s infringement of the Patents-in-Suit, but in no event less than a reasonable royalty; together with interest and costs along with costs and reasonable attorney fees and any other relief the Court deems just and proper.
