Google Sued with Two Mobile Game Companies

  • May 15, 2014

Smartflash LLC and Smartflash Technologies filed a single suit against Google, Gearbox, and Bonus XP. Mobile gaming applications that run on Android devices and use Android’s in-app payment functionality are accused of infringing six patents from a single family that relate to accessing mobile content  (7,334,720, 7,942,317, 8,033,458, 8,061,598, 8,118,221, 8,336,772). Last year, Smartflash filed its first two suits also targeting a combination of handset companies and game developers. Apple was sued alongside Robot Entertainment and Game Circus in one case and HTC, Samsung and Game Circus in another; both cases appear to still be active. 5/7, Eastern District of Texas, 6:14cv00435
