Innovation Automation Files New Round of Suits

  • December 18, 2013

This December Innovative Automation has filed seven suits, naming Kaleidescape, Kno, Kobo, Pacsgear, Redbox, Target, Verizon, and Vudu (Walmart) as defendants. Each case asserts a patent related to digital data duplication over a computer network (7174362). In the complaints, defendants’ media distribution and download services are accused of infringing the patent-in-suit. Innovative began this campaign in November 2012, naming a number of media distribution companies. It has also previously sued Kobo in a case from June 2013. The case was later consolidated with a number of other litigations filed by Innovative. Kobo was dismissed without prejudice from that action in October 2013 and the new case asserted the patent-in-suit along with an additional patent that is not involved in the current litigation. 12/6, Northern District of California, 4:13cv05648, 4:13cv05650, 4:13cv05651, 12/13, Eastern District of Texas, 2:13cv01103, 2:13cv01104, 2:13cv01108, 2:13cv01109
