Rock Creek Networks, LLC v. Fujitsu Limited

Case Summary

On March 12, 2021, Rock Creek Networks, LLC (“Plaintiff” or “RCN”) represented by Cabrach J. Connor of Connor Kudlac Lee PLLC filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Fujitsu Limited (“Fujitsu” or “Defendant”), seeking damages and costs of litigation for allegedly infringing RCN’s intellectual property relating to Lan Interface. This case was filed in U.S. District Court in the Western District of Texas with Judge Alan D. Albright presiding. 

 

The Plaintiff alleges that the Defendants have infringed one or more claims under United States Patent Number 6,671,750 entitled “LAN INTERFACE” (the “’750 Patent”) owned by RCN. 

 

Plaintiff in its complaint alleged that “Fujitsu makes, imports, sells, offers to sell, distributes, licenses, markets and/or uses switches and LAN adaptors such as the Fujitsu LAN Adapter D3035 Server and Extreme Switching X460-G2 (“the Accused Products”). Defendant has infringed and continue to infringe one or more claims, including Claim 1, of the ’750 Patent by making, using, importing, selling, and/or, offering for sale the Accused Products in the United States without authority.”

 

Plaintiff further alleged that “As exemplified in the information referenced in the above paragraphs and the use of one or more of the Accused Products, the Accused Products include a LAN interface that has LAN controller for processing a signal transmitted from a terminal connected to an I/O bus and then transmitting a processed signal to said counter device, and for processing a signal transmitted from said counter device and then transmitting a processed signal to said connection device.” and even further that “In operation, the link pulse detector, when detecting a link pulse output from the counter device, controls the LAN controller and the isolation section to controllably bring them to an operation state thereof and, when not detecting a link pulse output from the counter device, controls the LAN controller and the isolation section to controllably bring them to a non-operation state. Defendant’s infringing activities are and have been without authority or license under the ’750 Patent. Defendant has infringed and continues to infringe the ’750 Patent either directly or through the acts of inducement in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271. Defendant encourages others, including their customers, to use the Accused Products in the United States without authority.” 

 

The only claim for relief laid down by the Plaintiff is for the alleged infringement of one or more claims of the ‘750 Patent. 

 

In the prayer for relief, Plaintiff has requested the court to pass an order declaring that the Defendant has infringed the ’750 Patent. Plaintiff further requested the court to award Plaintiff damages for the alleged infringement of the ’750 Patent and also grant costs of litigation to Plaintiff.
