12:22 EDTCODEMacronix files additional patent infringement complaints against Spansion
Macronix International and Macronix America announced that they have filed a new patent infringement complaint against Spansion (CODE), Spansion LLC, Spansion Thailand and certain of their customers with the U.S. International Trade Commission, ITC, for infringement of four Macronix patents covering separate aspects of non-volatile memory devices, including flash memory. The named respondents include Aerohive Networks,, Allied Telesis , Ciena Corporation, Delphi Automotive and Delphi Automotive Systems, Polycom , Ruckus Wireless, ShoreTel, Tellabs and/or Tellabs North America, and TiVo Inc. The company added, "Macronix has taken this step to address Spansion's rampant infringement of Macronix's patent rights as well as the infringement that arises when Spansion's customers import products containing infringing Spansion's devices, including Spansion flash memory devices, into the United States." This additional complaint follows a first ITC complaint, that was filed in December 2013 and that will be determined in January, 2015, in which Macronix asserted three patents against Spansion. In addition, Macronix has a seven-patent infringement litigation pending against Spansion in the United States District Court. Macronix also has pending actions at the U.S. Patent Office to invalidate Spansion's patents asserted in an earlier-filed ITC case. The investigations of the above have been initiated respectively by the courts and/or authorities and the decisions will be available in the early part of 2015. Macronix is confident in those actions and will continue to vigorously defend its valuable intellectual property rights.
