Inventor-controlled NPE M2M Solutions LLC has filed a second Delaware suit against Amazon (1:18-cv-01532) as its previous suit against the company remains stayed pending the outcome of inter partes reviews (IPRs) against the patents-in-suit. This latest complaint asserts two newer family members of those at issue in the other suit. As in that first case, the NPE again accuses Amazon of infringement through the provision of its Kindle e-reader “ecosystem”, including the company’s e-readers and the Whispernet content delivery network. The complaint alleges that Whispernet infringes through the use of machine-to-machine, or M2M, communications to push content to Kindle devices.
M2M Solutions LLC has started a new litigation campaign, accusing Amazon (1:17-cv-00202) of infringing three device management patents (8,504,007; 8,577,358; 8,577,359) through its Kindle ecosystem, including the company’s e-readers and the Whispernet content delivery network. The latter is alleged to infringe through the use of machine-to-machine, or M2M, communications to push content to Kindle devices. This is the second campaign waged by the NPE, which appears to be controlled by a husband-and-wife pair of inventors and has previously listed an address in the United Kingdom.
