HTC sued by Klausner Technologies for Visual Voicemail patent infringement
Posted on 27-Apr-2010 09:58 | Tags Filed under: News



Klausner Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has filed suit against Taiwan cell phone manufacturer HTC Corp. (2498.TW) for patent infringement under its U.S. Visual Voicemail patents.

The lawsuit is based on the unveiling by HTC of its MyTouch 3G mobile phones, which is alledged to use Klausner Technologies' Visual Voicemail patented technology. Various other HTC models with the Visual Voicemail feature are already covered under Klausner Technologies Visual Voicemail patent licenses granted to certain mobile operators for their Visual Voicemail services.

Klausner Technologies currently has 27 Visual Voicemail patent licensees under its U.S., European and Asian patents, including major U.S. and European mobile operators, international cell phone manufacturers, cable/VOIP providers as well as other providers of Visual Voicemail services.

“Intellectual property gives meaning and structure to the greatest resource of all – human imagination. Songwriters collect royalties for the songs they compose, playwrights for the plays they write and inventors for the patents they create,” said Judah Klausner, Klausner Technologies’ President. The suit has been filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Texas by the California law firm of Dovel & Luner.

Klausner Technologies was founded by Judah Klausner and it owns a catalogue of 25 Visual Voicemail patents, in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Taiwan, Korea and Japan covering the basic Visual Voicemail feature in which users can selectively view and listen to their voice messages via their mobile phones or computers.
