Timely Inventions, LLC continues to sue defendants over how products are displayed on pallets, particularly in Costco stores. In its newest complaints, the NPE asserts a single packaging assembly patent against Bot Home Automation (Ring) (2:18-cv-02340), Samsung (2:18-cv-02227), and Winplus (5:18-cv-00606). Earlier cases in the campaign, against Berkley Industries, Grace Digital, Reckitt Benckiser, and Wynit Distribution, have been voluntarily dismissed before an answer or other response to each complaint had been filed.
After dipping a toe into litigation waters in 2016, Timely Inventions, LLC has jumped into a full-fledged campaign in 2017, suing 3M (2:17-cv-08853), Berkley Industries (2:17-cv-08173), Cobra Electronics (2:17-cv-08871), Grace Digital (2:17-cv-08172), Intuit (2:17-cv-08854), NETGEAR (2:17-cv-08864), and Reckitt Benckiser (2:17-cv-08873) over the same packaging assembly patent. The defendants are accused of infringement through their retail displays. Timely Inventions sued Wynit Distribution in February 2016 over packaging assemblies for the Fitbit, as displayed in Costco stores nationwide.
