Patent infringement in the use of a protected video signal by a video decoder

By playing a video signal encoded according to the patent, this is used as a protected direct process product, e.g. by a cell phone.

The patent in suit protects a method for encoding a video signal. By playing this video signal, commercial customers use the direct process product manufactured according to the patent in suit. The patent-infringing use of the video signal includes any intended use of the direct process product. These patent-infringing acts of the commercial customers are the starting point for the liability of the manufacturer of the cell phone as interferer.
