Blu-ray Patent Pool Takes Imation To Court


One-Blue, a company that gathers patents related to the Blu-ray disc technology, has filed suit against Imation for infringing patents essential to manufacture Blu-ray Disc products.

The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, asserts that Imation Corp., which sells Blu-ray Disc products under the Imation, TDK and Memorex brands, has infringed six (6) U.S. patents: 7,290,272; 7,389,520; 7,292,509; 7,123,567; 7,349,309; and 7,158,472. These patents are included in the portfolio offered for license by the One-Blue licensing program.

"The One-Blue patent pool provides companies with a fair and cost effective mechanism for obtaining Blu-ray Disc product licenses," said Mr. William J. Lenihan, Director IP Licensing, One-Blue. "We filed this patent infringement suit in order to maintain a level playing field for the members of the One-Blue patent pool?licensors and licensees alike who manufacture and sell Blu-ray Disc products. We have a duty to ensure that all companies selling Blu-ray Disc products honor the essential patents in the One-Blue pool."

One-Blue membership includes CyberLink, Dell, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, Hitachi Consumer Electronics, JVC Kenwood, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Taiyo Yuden and Yamaha. These fifteen Licensors have made available more than 10,000 BD product patents worldwide related to the Blu-ray, DVD, and CD standards.
