Defendant Count in Shipping & Transit Campaign Approaches 80
Shipping & Transit, LLC has continued its onslaught of litigation against retailers, adding a dozen new defendants to its sole litigation campaign over the past month. Since April 2015, the NPE (formerly known as ArrivalStar SA and Melvino Technologies Limited) has sued nearly 80 companies over a group of patents generally related to shipment tracking and scheduling (6,904,359; 6,975,998; 7,030,781; 7,400,970). Shipping and notification services (e.g. an email to a customer that includes a tracking link) have been the accused products throughout this campaign, and that focus continues in the NPE’s most recent suits, filed against CJ Pony Parts (9:16-cv-80191), Ebuys (2:16-cv-00741), Pharmapacks (9:16-cv-80189), Shutterfly (9:16-cv-80190), What She Buys (9:16-cv-80192), and VelaTrack (2:16-cv-00911).
