Short Take: Datapoint files videoconferencing class-action suit

Datapoint has filed a brief in U.S. District Court in Dallas requesting that the court amend and certify the company's videoconferencing patent infringement suit against Intel as a class-action suit. Datapoint has identified more than 500 infringers of its two videoconferencing patents in three distinct classes--manufacturers, communication providers, and resellers--and has proposed that defendant-class representatives include Intel, Teleos Communications, Pacific Bell, Hayes Microcomputer, and Dell Computer. Datapoint is seeking royalty payments from the defendants.
