Eolas Technologies Reaches Settlement with New Frontier Media in Texas Patent Infringement Lawsuit
The settlement resolves all of Eolas’ legal claims against New Frontier in Eolas Technologies Inc. v. Adobe Systems Inc., et al., No. 6:09-cv-446. The terms of the settlement are confidential. The lawsuit remains pending against several additional defendants.
The lawsuit includes claims related to two Eolas patents, U.S. Patent No. 5,838,906 ('906 Patent) and U.S. Patent No. 7,599,985 ('985 Patent).
The '906 Patent embodies technology that enabled web browsers for the first time to act as platforms for fully interactive embedded applications. This advanced browser technology provides rich interactive online experiences for more than a billion web users worldwide. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the '906 Patent in November 1998.
The '906 Patent was the subject of prior litigation against Microsoft Corp. that resulted in a 2004 federal judgment of more than $565 million in favor of Eolas. The USPTO has affirmed the validity of the '906 Patent in three separate proceedings, including two patent reexaminations, the most recent of which concluded in February 2009.
