Delaware NPE Begins Asserting Patents Received from Plano Encryption Technologies

June 6, 2019

As predicted, Honeyman Cipher Solutions LLC has launched its first litigation campaign, asserting one of the patents previously litigated by Bradley D. Liddle’s Plano Encryption Technologies, LLC (PET). The new Northern District of Illinois complaint asserts a patent generally related to digital content protection in computer systems against Groupon (1:19-cv-03754) for a second time, again targeting the company over its use of Apple’s iTunes Connect and Google’s Android Developer Console to register and distribute its iOS and Android apps, respectively. In June 2017, a suit over the same patent, filed by PET in the Eastern District of Texas, was dismissed for improper venue a few months after the US Supreme Court’s TC Heartland decision.
