The plaintiffs reside in Flower Mound, Fort Worth, and Spring, respectively.

The sons of the late inventor Charles C. Freeny, Jr., they have pursued legal action in response to what they assert is infringement of United States Patent Number 6,490,443.

Per court papers, the ‘443 patent, entitled “Communication and Proximity Authorization Systems,” was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Dec. 3, 2002 and attributed to the complainants’ father.

“The ’443 patent describes, among other things, novel systems in which electronic devices can communicate wirelessly to provide and/or receive services from other electronic devices when they are within proximity of each other,” court documents say.

“These communications can occur over multiple communication signals and with the use of authorization codes.”

The Freeny siblings seek unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

Attorney Christopher D. Banys of the law firm Banys, P.C. in Palo Alto, Calif. serves as the plaintiffs’ lead counsel.
