E.Digital files two more patent lawsuits

San Diego’s e.Digital Corp. has filed a pair of federal lawsuits accusing Fujifilm Corp. and JVC Kenwood Corp. and their subsidiaries of infringing on its patents covering flash memory technologies. The company, an early pioneer in patenting flash memory technology, has filed 14 similar suits since last October.

E.Digital has been suffering mounting losses and declining revenues, with a net loss of $345,000 in the most recent quarter on revenues of just $79,000. The reason for the loss: Its patent license revenues dropped from $1.1 million in the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2012 to zero in the last quarter.

The drop-off prompted the company to retain a patent law firm, Handal & Associates, to begin suing over the flash memory patents.

“We have been aggressively pursuing parties believed to infringe [on our patents],” said Fred Falk, the company’s chief executive.
