VIZIO Wins In Patent Lawsuit




Irvine-based VIZIO, the manufacturer of HDTVs and other consumer electronics, said it has scored a win in another patent lawsuit today, saying that it has defeated a "patent troll". VIZIO said that it was granted summary judgement of invalidity on a patent held by Lochner Technologies LLC, a "non-practicing entity" (NPE). VIZIO explained that the win was the seventh recent victory by VIZIO over a "patent troll"--the many companies out there which buy patents and then proceed to aggressively license those patents to companies under threat of a lawsuit. The entire issue of "patent trolls" is now being advised by a White House task force to address the issue.
