Mozly Tech LLC has added four new defendants to its sole litigation campaign, accusing HubSpot (2:17-cv-00446), LexisNexis (2:17-cv-00447), RingCentral (2:17-cv-00448), and SAP (2:17-cv-00449) of infringing a single patent (7,367,044) generally related to managing account permissions over a network of secure servers. As in most of its previous complaints, the plaintiff—an affiliate of IP Edge LLC—alleges infringement through the provision of customer relationship management (CRM) software.
IBM (2:17-cv-00157) and ServiceAide (2:17-cv-00156) are the latest defendants to be added to the customer service management (CRM) software campaign of Mozly Tech LLC. The newest complaints assert the same patent (7,367,044), which is generally related to managing account permissions over a network of secure servers. Mozly Tech, an apparent affiliate of Texas patent monetization firm IP Edge LLC, accuses IBM of infringement through the provision of its Notes Traveler software and ServiceAide, through the provision of its Cloud Service Management Platform (acquired from CA Technologies in October 2016). A repeated motion attacking the ‘044 patent as patent-ineligibly directed to the abstract idea of “remotely storing contact information including telephone numbers for dialing” is pending before Magistrate Judge Roy S. Payne.
New NPE Mozly Tech LLC has filed eight lawsuits on the same day, alleging that various software products sold by the defendants infringe a single patent (7,367,044) related to managing account permissions over a network of secure servers. This litigation campaign is Mozly’s first, and even though the NPE began suing less than a week ago, it has already filed sixteen lawsuits. Most of the cases have targeted companies selling customer relationship management (CRM) software, including Avaya (2:15-cv-01888), Netsuite (2:15-cv-01898), SugarCRM (2:15-cv-01901), and Zoho (2:15-cv-01904). However, the accused products also include contact management software sold by Blackberry (2:15-cv-01889), HTC (2:15-cv-01893), Sprint (2:15-cv-01902), and Verizon (2:15-cv-01903).
