Cronos Technologies Sues Toolup.com
- October 10, 2012
Cronos Technologies filed suit against Toolup.com, alleging that Toolup.com’s website infringes a patent related to a remote ordering system. Cronos has filed over 10 prior suits since April 2012 against Camping World, Carter’s, Fossil, General Nutrition Centers, J.Crew, Nutrisystem, Tempur-Pedic, Toys “R” Us, and Vitamin Shoppe. RPX reviewed the patent-in-suit on the open market twice, once in October 2009 (UBS) and again in November 2010 (UBS 2). The patent-in-suit was issued to Highpoint Systems in September 1997, which later sold that patent to UBS AG in January 2006. UBS AG assigned it to Cronos in September 2011. 10/5, District of Nevada, assigned to Judge James C. Mahan and referred to Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach, 2:2012cv01748.
