For three weeks in a row, DataCloud Technologies, LLC has added a new case to its litigation campaign asserting a subset of the patents that it received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) in January 2020. The plaintiff sued A10 Networks (1:22-cv-01644) at the end of last year, hitting first Datto (1:23-cv-00019) and then 8x8 (1:23-cv-00050) and Barracuda Networks (1:23-cv-00072) since. Up to four such patents are at issue in each complaint, two broadly directed to file management and the others, to wireless communications. Various web, network and software products have been targeted in this campaign, which began back in June 2020.
Hanger Solutions, LLC, an IP Investments Group LLC (d/b/a IPInvestments Group) NPE, has sued CharterCommunications (6:22-cv-00070) in the Western District of Texas over the provision of Spectrum Web Services and certain VMware products. Asserted are the same three patents in Delaware complaints filed against Extreme Networks (last January) and Squarespace (last May). The new complaint appears to be a draft document, rather than a finished document, with alleged, inadvertent transpositions in pleadings filed by Hanger’s “sister” NPE DataCloud Technologies, LLC already featuring rather prominently in that campaign.
DataCloud Technologies, LLC, an NPE associated with Georgia monetization firm IPInvestments Group LLC (d/b/a IPinvestments Group), has filed suit against Charter Communications (6:21-cv-00662) in the Western District of Texas. The seven asserted patents, one of which is new to litigation, are broadly directed to various aspects of content delivery and network management. The NPE’s infringement allegations target the provision of a wide variety of products (e.g., cloud computing services, mobile apps, routers, SIM Cards, and website building and management tools). DataCloud is among several NPEs to have launched campaigns from the over 3,800 US assets flowing out of Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) in late 2020 to entities associated with the Georgia monetization firm.
