LG Electronics (LGE) (2:23-cv-00007) has been added as a defendant to the recently launched litigation campaign of Hyperquery LLC, which sued HP and Samsung in the Western District of Texas earlier in January. By contrast, the complaint against LGE has been filed in the Eastern District of Texas but still targets the provision of smartphones that incorporate a “pre-installed Google search engine” and “pre-installed Google Play Store” with two patents developed by DoAT Media Ltd. (a/k/a “Do@” and EverythingMe), which offered an app launcher before closing in 2015.
Hyperquery LLC has filed its first litigation, suing HP (6:23-cv-00006) and Samsung (6:23-cv-00007) in a pair of Western District of Texas complaints in which infringement of two patents developed by DoAT Media Ltd. (a/k/a “Do@” and EverythingMe) is alleged. Targeted are HP’s Chromebooks and Samsung’s smartphones having “pre-installed Google Play Store that provides different apps such as gaming, movies, TV Shows, etc. to the user”. EverythingMe offered an app launcher, shuttering in 2015; some of the company’s patents moved into Hyperquery’s hands in July 2022. Alphabet (Google) is not named as a defendant in either complaint.
