Memorylink has filed a suit against Motorola claiming that the company willfully stole its wireless video technology, in what it is alleging was a “scheme of lies, broken promises and outright deceit.” The suit alleges Motorola intentionally defrauded Memorylink and stole intellectual property related to the company’s invention of certain wireless video technology, now widely used.
“We tried our best to settle this matter amicably with Motorola to the best interests of both companies, but to no avail,” said Jon Huard, CEO of Memorylink, in a company statement. “This left Memorylink with no choice but to file the claim against Motorola, since we have a fiduciary obligation to our shareholders to get value from what we invented.”
The suit seeks damages from the profits that Motorola realized over the past several years from sales of the technology. The complaint also seeks an injunction against Motorola and that the court reassigns patent ownership to Memorylink.
