e.Digital Files Patent Infringement Lawsuits Against iSmart Alarm, iBaby, MivaTek, and MyFox

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - December 17, 2015) - e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, today announced that it has filed several new patent infringement lawsuits against companies in the "connected" security camera industry, asserting infringement of five patents that are part of the Company's Nunchi® patent portfolio. e.Digital believes the products named in the complaints infringe key aspects of its Nunchi patents, covering the use of devices to monitor remote locations and communicate information.

The list of defendants includes: iSmart Alarm, Inc., iBaby Labs, Inc., MivaTek International, Inc., and MyFox, Inc. The complaints were filed on behalf of the Company by Handal & Associates, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

Nunchi technology gathers information based on physical sensors, actions in an environment, as well as historical data, and acts on this information to perform operations or communicate. Applications based on Nunchi technology may include the use of the cloud, communication networks, sensors, algorithms, as well as databases, to understand and respond to the needs of people.

"The connected home industry is increasingly becoming more reliant on the collection of data from remote sensors," commented Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. "We believe the recent Markman ruling favorably construed important terms in our patents, enhancing our ability to enforce infringement against these defendants and others. We will defend our intellectual properties vigorously and aggressively as we continue to pioneer new technologies."
