Equitable IP Sub Asserts Previously Litigated Networking Patents in Third New Campaign of the Year

April 9, 2020

Equitable IP Corporation has initiated its third new campaign of 2020, with subsidiary Communication Interface Technologies LLC suing American Messaging Services (4:20-cv-00308), Capital One (4:20-cv-00307), Cinemark (4:20-cv-00306), FedEx (4:20-cv-00305), PepsiCo (4:20-cv-00286), Rent-A-Center (4:20-cv-00287), TI (4:20-cv-00288), and Yum! Brands (4:20-cv-00289), all in the Eastern District of Texas. Three patents generally related to maintaining a remote connection with a server through a mobile device are asserted in each complaint, with the defendants accused of infringement through the provision of mobile apps that deliver push notifications from servers to mobile devices. The new Communication Interface campaign is not the first to assert these patents in litigation.
