Number of Licensees to Patents Asserted in Equitable IP’s Mobile App Campaign Reportedly Approaches 200

July 10, 2020

Communication Interface Technologies LLC (CIT), a subsidiary of Equitable IP Corporation, has added four more lawsuits to its litigation campaign, begun this past April, over three patents generally related to maintaining a remote connection with a server through a mobile device. The new defendants are Farmers Group (4:20-cv-00526), JPMorgan Chase (4:20-cv-00527), TD Ameritrade (4:20-cv-00528), and UPS (4:20-cv-00529), each accused of infringement through the provision of apps that deliver push notifications from servers to mobile devices. CIT pleads that “there are more than 184 licensees to” each of the asserted patents, a list that already appears to include some of the defendants from the NPE’s first round.
