eDekka Takes Its Shopping Cart Campaign, Wiped Out Under Alice, to the Federal Circuit

  • October 28, 2015

Following District Judge Rodney Gilstrap’s invalidation of eDekka LLC’s sole patent-in-campaign (6,266,674), the NPE is forging ahead with an appeal before the Federal Circuit (16-1120). Since initiating this campaign in 2013, eDekka has sued more than 250 defendants over the ‘674 patent, accusing a wide variety of companies of infringing the patent through their websites’ online shopping cart features. According to RPX’s 2014 NPE Litigation Report, eDekka filed 127 new cases last year alone (second only to Acacia Research Corporation in the number of new cases filed in 2014). Nearly ninety of those cases were filed on April 23, 2014, causing some to speculate that the NPE was concerned about patent legislation that, if passed, would have taken effect the next day.
