Ogma LLC sues 3M, Optoma Technology, and Bensussen Deutsch & Associates Inc

Ogma LLC strikes again ! In three separate lawsuits filed on Thursday, July 21, 2011 in the Texas Eastern District Court, Ogma has sued 3M, Optoma Technology, and Bensussen Deutsch & Associates for patent infringement. It appears that Ogma has filed concurrent lawsuits in both ITC and the Texas Eastern District Court. While 3M is into multiple products, Optoma manufactures digital displays and projectors for home and office. Bensussen Deutsch & Associates is a marketing firm that managers marketing activities in places such as school, auditoriums, stadiums and centers of commerce.


Very little is known about Ogma and people in the past have speculated that Ogma is a patent troll. The assignee information reveals that Ogma's place of business may be Longview, Texas. Ogma owns two patents by virtue of patent assignment. The patents are US5825427 (the '427 patent), entitled "Image display system "and US6150947 (the '947 patent), entitled "Programmable motion-sensitive sound effects device ". Ogma acquired both the patents from Medici portfolio Acquisition LLC.


This is not the first time that Ogma is involved in patent infringement lawsuits. Prior to these three lawsuits, Ogma has sued prominent company's such as Apple, Dell, HP, HTC, Nokia, RIM, Motorola and Sony Ericsson for patent infringement involving the same patents.


The '427 patent is related to video broadcasting and displaying video images in either 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ration.






The '947 patents is related to interactive sound effects.
