New suits have been filed against Microsoft (LinkedIn) (1:18-cv-01484) and Quotient Technology (1:18-cv-01485) and come as the deadline to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint in the first case, filed against Twitter earlier this year, has been moved to late October. Infringement allegations focus on the defendants’ use of targeted advertising on their respective platforms.
Digi Portal LLC, an apparent affiliate of Texas monetization firm IP Edge LLC, has filed its first litigation, suing Twitter (1:18-cv-00808) over a single patent generally related to delivering customized webpages to Internet users. The NPE’s infringement allegations focus on the defendant’s generation of a user’s “Twitter home page and Timeline”, with paragraphs 12 through 25 of Digi Portal’s complaint explaining the usefulness and uniqueness of the purported invention and providing citation to the specification of the patent-in-suit for nearly every sentence.
