Alice Invalidations Continue to Ripple Through Data Scape Campaign

June 7, 2019

Data Scape Limited continues to reorder its cloud computing campaign in the wake of a May 17, 2019 order from the Central District of California invalidating four challenged patents under Alice. District Judge David O. Carter ruled that those patents are patent-ineligibly directed to the abstract idea of “data storage, transfer, and processing”, prompting the NPE, that next week, to file voluntary dismissals and new complaints against previous defendants Amazon, Box, Dell, Dropbox, Pandora, Spotify, and Teradata and to file separate complaints against defendants Apple and Verizon. This past week, Data Scape added Citrix (2:19-cv-04667) to that first list, dismissing without prejudice a December 2018 complaint while filing a new one that asserts a single, newly issued patent, not litigated prior to the Alice invalidation.
