Samsung facing $3 billion dollar lawsuit over patent infringement

Samsung hit with patent lawsuit over Galaxy S biometrics tech

According PACid Technologies, Samsung owes the company $2.8 billion. However, this isn't the first time Samsung has been accused of patent infringement though.

U.S. data security firm PACid Technologies is suing the Galaxy smartphone maker for apparently infringing on three patents which relate to its biometric authentication tech. In the suit, the company claims that Samsung two of its patents filed in the United States, and a third patent filed in South Korea. It adds that one of the patent is infringed in South Korea as well. The specific phones named in the suit include the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8+. Sammobile reports that the damage could amount up to $3 billion for the Korean company. The Investor suggests, for example, that industry sources call the company " a patent troll" that relies on "suing companies that actually develop and sell products based on loose interpretations of intellectual property regulations" and is simply disguising this under its data security moniker. For its part, Samsung says it is now preparing to fight the lawsuit in the USA, suggesting the company, which is a member of the FIDO Alliance Board of Directors, intends to protect the authentication technology industry from any potential chilling effects that PACid's success could result in.
