Arrow SanDisk drops a patent lawsuit bomb, sues 25 companies for infringement

SanDisk drops a patent lawsuit bomb, sues 25 companies for infringement

Posted Oct 24th 2007 8:38PM by Nilay Patel



Apparently SanDisk just noticed that other companies have had the nerve to ship flash-memory devices, because it's just dropped two lawsuits and an International Trade Commission action against some 25 companies, including Philips, Kingston, Imation / Memorex, LG, and Verbatim. SanDisk is alleging that these companies infringed up to seven different patents, although what those patents cover has not yet been released. The two lawsuits are filed in the Western District of Wisconsin, which is known as a "rocket docket," so we should hear more about them relatively quickly, but the real action for right now is the ITC case, which is the same type of complaint that halted imports of those Qualcomm chips and could result in a stoppage of flash imports if successful. This just dropped, so we'll keep you updated as we find out more -- and peep the whole list of companies being sued after the break.

Disclaimer: Although this post was written by an attorney, it is not meant to be legal advice or analysis and should not be taken as such.

Transcend
TSR (d/b/a T.One)
USBest
Verbatim
Welldone Company

PNY
PQI
Silicon Motion
Skymedi
Transcend

Great......so if this goes through we can expect prices to sky rocket since we will be stuck with one manufacturer till it all gets straightened out. I wonder if this will affect the new Flash Memmory hard drives that have started shipping in some laptops recently.
