Tela Innovations, Inc. Files Complaint at the U.S. International Trade Commission for Unfair Trade Practices Stemming From Patent Infringement

LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- Tela Innovations, Inc. today announced that it filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) against HTC Corporation; HTC America, Inc.; LG Electronics, Inc.; LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc.; LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc.; Motorola Mobility LLC; Nokia Corporation; Nokia, Inc.; Pantech Co., Ltd.; and Pantech Wireless, Inc. (collectively, the "Respondents") alleging that the Respondents have engaged in unfair trade practices by selling for importation into the United States, importing into the United States, and/or selling after importation into the United States certain consumer electronics devices that infringe seven of Tela's United States patents.

Tela has created patented design solutions for advanced IC manufacturing processes where lithography-driven constraints require novel approaches to both digital circuit design and the physical implementation of these designs. These solutions are utilized in the most recent generation of products offered by the named Respondents.

"Tela has, and continues to, create technology to address critical technical and economic challenges facing the semiconductor industry. Our products enable designers to achieve the best performance, area and power characteristics possible as semiconductor processes continue to scale. Given the significance of our company's investment in this technology and associated products, it was necessary to take legal action at this time," said Scott Becker, president and CEO of Tela.

Tela's complaint with the USITC seeks an exclusion order that would bar from entry into the United States infringing smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices that are imported by or on behalf of Respondents. Tela also seeks a cease and desist order to bar further sales of infringing products that have already been imported into the United States. Under its rules, the USITC has thirty days from the filing of the complaint to decide whether to formally institute an investigation.

Tela also filed parallel actions in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware alleging that Respondents' same devices infringe the same patents identified in the USITC complaint. The Delaware complaints seek a permanent injunction and compensatory damages, as well as recovery of reasonable attorneys' fees and costs. If the USITC institutes the investigation referenced above, Respondents will have a statutory right (but not the obligation) to stay the Delaware District Court proceeding pending a final determination in the USITC.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
