Broadcom is being accused of having made, used, offered for sale, sold, and imported ‘664 Accused products. Also, the claim accuses Broadcom of knowingly inducing clients to use ‘664 Accused Products in the US in the customary, ordinary, and intended way through intermediaries, distributing the ‘664 Accused Products.

Furthermore, the complaints claimed that Broadcom intentionally violated the patents, despite the fact that Broadcom had included several of them in its patent applications.
