New NPE Asserts Familiar Music Sharing Patent in E-Commerce Campaign
- June 17, 2016
Falkon Treasures LLC, a newly formed NPE based in Texas, has initiated a litigation campaign asserting a single patent (6,233,682) generally related to distributing musical products over the Internet. The entity accuses Adidas (2:16-cv-00653), Barnes & Noble (2:16-cv-00654), Burlington Coat Factory (2:16-cv-00655), GameStop (2:16-cv-00656), and Sun Capital Partners (Limited Stores) (2:16-cv-00657) of infringing the ‘682 patent through websites that offer online gift cards and distribute both electronic and tangible products. While these lawsuits are the first filed by Falkon Treasures, the ‘682 patent has also been involved in two previous litigation campaigns: one started by Batarga LLC in 2015 and another waged by Sharing Sound LLC beginning in 2010.
