Joe Mullin has a good story this week Honeywell Loses Texas "Trolling Try" on the outcome of Honeywell's licensing arm's litigation against eight LCD panel manufacturers in the Eastern District (specifically Judge Davis and Love's court in Tyler). According to Joe, seven of the eight defendants settled over the course of litigation, but the eighth which did not settle, a small Taiwanese company called Novatek, won summary judgment of noninfringement earlier this month. (Ed. note - I am part of the team of attorneys representing Novatek in this case so I had sort of heard of this before I saw the article).
The article focuses on Honeywell's use of the business model of establishing a licensing operation, Honeywell Intellectual Property International (HIPI), which is kept separate from Honeywell’s operating divisions, to monetize its IP.
