Samsung slapped with monster $2.8 billion lawsuit for allegedly stealing biometric tech

Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo

As a result of Samsung's infringement of the '993 Patent, PACid has suffered monetary damages, and is entitled to an award of damages adequate to compensate it for such infringement under 35 U.S.C. § 284, but in no event, less than a reasonable royalty.

Encryption technology research firm PACid Technologies has filed a lawsuit against Samsung Electronics for allegedly infringing upon its biometric patents. The company known as PACid technologies deals with technology pertaining to encryption and has accused Samsung of using three of its biometric patents without licensing them.

Samsung Electronics Co.is focusing on expanding its patent holdings in the United States, industry sources said Friday, amid intensifying industrywide intellectual property rights disputes. However, it has reached that stage by battling a number of patent litigation, including the one where Apple sued the South Korean company for copying its designs for the Galaxy smartphone.

Another year, another lawsuit for Samsung.

Nawaz Sharif, Jahangir Tareen disqualified for life
The Supreme Court reserved the ruling of the disqualification period for 62-1F on February 14 2018. Nawaz Sharif however was not one of the petitioners in this case.

The lawsuit, filed on 6 April with the Texas Eastern District Court, includes Samsung phones from the Galaxy S6 all the way through to the Galaxy S8. If found guilty of being aware of PACid's patents, Samsung stands to pay up to three times the damage amount per unit sold. The practice is predominant in the tech industry, and recently tech analysts called BlackBerry as another patent troll when it filed lawsuit against Facebook and Snapchat.

And to put it into perspective a bit, the company has also sued Google, Apple, and Nintendo for patent infringement before.

Nevertheless, let's see how the Korean company will handle this particular lawsuit from PACid.
