MIAMI – A Boca Raton corporation claims Wal-Mart is selling DVD devices that are unlicensed.
Nissim Corp. filed a complaint on March 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. alleging patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it is the owner of U.S. Patent 5,434,678, which is titled Seamless Transmission of Non-Sequential Video Segments, and five other patents. The suit states the patents are used in connection with DVDs. The plaintiff holds Wal-Mart Stores Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly infringed these patents by selling unlicensed DVD devices.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, compensatory damages, attorneys' fees, costs, disbursements, interest and further relief as the court deems just. It is represented by John C. Carey and Ernesto M. Rubi of Carey Rodriguez Milian Gonya LLP in Miami.
