Interactive Graphic Solutions LLC has filed a lawsuit in the Western District of Texas against Microsoft Corporation alleging that Microsoft infringed some of its patents relating to graphic displays and processing.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendants infringed its patents-in-suit with United States Patent Nos. 7,916,147 (the ’147 patent); 8,081,192 (the ’192 patent); 8,203,568 (the ’568 patent); 8,466,922 (the ’922 patent); 9,113,146 (the ’146 patent); 9,117,285 (the ’285 patent); 9,424,621 (the ’621 patent); and 9,852,490 (the ’490 patent) covering “Centralised Interactive Graphical Application Server” and “Sharing a graphical processing unit between a plurality of programs.”

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that Microsoft makes, uses, sells, offers to sell, and/or imports products or systems including its Operating Systems with RemoteFX which uses the methods and features described in the patents-in-suit.

The plaintiff reportedly argued that Microsoft has infringed the patents by using their processes within its Azure cloud services platform, including its Azure virtual desktop infrastructure and virtual apps services.

The plaintiff seeks declaratory judgment in its favor; an award for damages, royalties, costs, and fees; and pre- and post-judgment interest.

The case is pending.
