That is basically every company who has ever sold a touch sensitive device. Typhoon reached an out of court agreement with Motion Computing. That agreement included a royalty payment of at least 20% on past and future sales of Motion Computing Scribbler Tablet PC. The suit claims the companies have infringed upon Typhoon patents 5,379,057 and 5,675,362.
"The addition of these defendants is a further step in protecting Typhoon's IP from being unfairly exploited. Hopefully, the world of potential infringers will take notice that it is the Company's intent to aggressively protect its intellectual property," stated Craig Weiner, Esq., from the law firm of Hofheimer, Gartlir & Gross LLP in New York City, Director of Legal Affairs and Licensing for Typhoon. "As alleged in the amended complaint, Typhoon believes that numerous defendants are selling and/or offering for sale -- what could be millions of devices -- which may infringe Typhoon's patents."
