Fractus S.A. Sues Ten Cell Phone Manufacturers for Patent Infringement on Nine Different Patents

HOUSTON, TX and BARCELONA, SPAIN – On Tuesday, May 5, 2009, Fractus S.A. of Barcelona, Spain sued cell phone manufacturers Samsung, LG, RIM, Pantech, Kyocera, Palm, HTC, Sharp, UTStarcom, and Sanyo for infringing nine different patents held by Fractus.

Fractus is an early pioneer in developing internal antennas for cellular phones and other industries.  Founded in 1999, Fractus set out to meet the challenge of delivering antennas small enough to fit inside a cell phone yet powerful enough to support today’s multiband cell phones.  Fractus has been, and remains, an active supplier of antennas and has shipped millions of antennas worldwide.

Among the numerous awards and honors the company has received for its innovative work, Fractus has been named a 2005 Davos World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer and one of Red Herring’s top innovative companies for 2006.  It has also won the 2004 Frost & Sullivan award for technological innovation and the 2007 Elektra European Electronics Industry R&D Award.

Fractus holds over 80 patents worldwide, including over 30 United States patents.  “We are grateful that Fractus has chosen us to represent them in enforcing these patents,” said Max Tribble of Susman Godfrey L.L.P., lead lawyer for Fractus.  “It is very brave of Fractus to fight against these cell phone companies, many of whom knew about Fractus and its technology yet still continued to infringe.  Fractus’s inventions have added tremendous value to both the cell phone user and manufacturer.”

IPotential, LLC, has been retained by Fractus as its licensing business advisor.

Fractus is represented by Max Tribble and Justin Nelson of Susman Godfrey L.L.P. and Michael Heim of Heim, Payne & Chorush, L.L.P.  The case was filed in the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, Case No. 6:09-cv-203.
