Innovative Automation Enforcement Campaign Shifts to Media Distributors
- November 21, 2012
Innovative Automation filed three separate suits against Apple, Amazon, and Spotify, alleging that the defendants’ media distribution services infringe two patents related to data duplication over a network. Innovative Automation filed nine prior suits between March and August of 2011, primarily targeting small providers of optical disc duplication technology. The patents-in-suit were assigned to Innovative Automation by JC Research in February 2011. The named inventor of the patents, Sungil Lee, appears to control both entities. 11/16, Eastern District of Texas, 6:2012cv00881; 6:2012cv00882; 6:2012cv00883.
