In Second Campaign from Set of Former Pantech Patents, Hypertext Technologies Tags Google and One Plus

December 6, 2019

In May 2019, Cellular Evolution LLC, an entity associated with California law firm Farjami & Farjami LLP, acquired a portfolio of six former Pantech patents. This past June, Cellular Evolution launched a litigation campaign over five of them, hitting AT&T and T-Mobile in separate Eastern District of Texas complaints. In August, the NPE assigned the sixth patent, generally related to jumping from a text message containing a URL to the corresponding website, to Hypertext Technologies LLC, which has just filed its first lawsuits, accusing Alphabet (Google) (8:19-cv-02356) and BBK Electronics (One Plus) (8:19-cv-02358) of infringing the patent through the provision of devices (i.e., smartphones) receiving text messages with “embedded SMS clickable links”.
