Spellcheck Campaign Nears the Close of Its Second Decade, with a New Case Against Apple and Open Cases Against HTC, LG Electronics, and Zoho

August 1, 2019

Inventor-controlled Sentius International, LLC has filed another suit in its spellcheck and grammar check campaign, accusing Apple (1:19-cv-01444) of infringing two patents already at issue in the litigation. The NPE accuses Apple of infringement through the provision of a wide variety of iOS devices, as well as certain versions of online applications (e.g., iCloud Keynote, iCloud Pages, iWork), as used with “Apple servers, a master dictionary database, [and] syndicated versions of that master dictionary database in the form of spell check dictionaries”. The complaint targets spellcheck and grammar check functionalities within those products. The new Delaware suit joins open cases in the same district filed last August against HTC and LG Electronics (LGE) and an open declaratory judgment action brought in the Northern District of California against Sentius by Zoho.
