A U.S. payment solution company has recently filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung Electronics.

Dynamics Inc., an American payment solution company, has recently filed a lawsuit against Samsung Electronics, claiming that it violated Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 with regard to mobile devices including multifunction emoulators. The United States International Trade Commission is going to initiate an investigation soon. If the commission concludes that Samsung Electronics actually violated the law, it can ban imports of its mobile products or issue a corrective order.

Earlier, Ireland-based Neodron filed a suit with the commission in May this year, claiming that seven companies such as Samsung Electronics, Amazon, Dell and HP infringed upon four of its patents related to mobile and laptop touch screen technology. The commission decided last month to launch an investigation.

AMC is their attorney in both cases. AMC is a law firm specialized in Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. Some experts point out that the suits reflect Samsung Electronics’ leading position in the industry and it is unlikely to take a direct hit from the suits. Others mention that the investigations are likely to be pretty burdensome on the part of Samsung Electronics.

The company has been engaged in a series of lawsuits against multiple non-practicing entities. For example, Uniloc sued the company in April this year with regard to its latest Galaxy phones. Uniloc filed no less than 52 suits against South Korean companies in 2018 alone.
