Written April 10, 2019

The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on April 8, 2019, upheld the validity of Omega Patents, LLC’s remote vehicle control patents, but, ordered a new trial on whether Cal Amp Corp. induced infringement. Omega Patents, LLC v. CalAmp Corp., Fed. Cir., No. 2018-1309, 4/8/19.

Omega owns four patents related to multi-vehicle compatible systems that can remotely control various vehicle functions, such as remote vehicle starting. A jury found the patents valid, that they were directly infringed by CalAmp’s GPS and data collection device, and that CalAmp induced its customers to directly infringe.

CalAmp argued that it was entitled to JMOL of non-infringement or a new trial. The Federal Circuit agreed that CalAmp was entitled to JMOL of no direct infringement because the claim required a transmitter and receiver that was on a cell tower CalAmp did not provide.
