Pennsylvania-based business technology company Rembrandt Wireless Technologies LP has been awarded by a Texas federal jury $15.7 million after ruling that South Korean multinational electronics giant Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. had infringed on their patent rights regarding two Rembrandt patents covering Bluetooth technology.
Rembrandt filed the lawsuit against Samsung and Canadian telecommunication and wireless equipment company Blackberry Ltd. in 2013. Blackberry settled with Rembrandt before the trial occurred. According to Rembrandt, its two patents for Bluetooth enhanced data rate inventions were copied by Samsung and used as features on its Galaxy S phones. Representatives for Rembrandt says that “justice has been done here” since their client’s inventions were what made Samsung’s Bluetooth technology possible. They also say that they expect Samsung to appeal, but they have full faith that the decision will be upheld.
