e.Digital Corporation Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit against Dropcam

e.Digital Corporation announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against ‘connected’ security camera maker Dropcam. The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. Handal & Associates, on behalf of the company, recently filed the lawsuit against Dropcam, asserting six patents that are part of the Nunchi patent portfolio. e.Digital believes the Dropcam products named in the complaint infringe key aspects of the company's Nunchi patents, covering the use of devices to communicate and monitor remote locations. Nunchi technology involves the retrieval of data from fixed or mobile sensors, using it to recognize, understand and affect interactions. Services based on the Nunchi portfolio include the use of servers, communication networks, sensors, adaptive algorithms and relational databases to understand and respond to the needs of people.
