Samsung Seeks Declaratory Judgments of Noninfringement of Blaze Mobile Patents

May 5, 2021

Samsung (5:21-cv-02989) has filed a declaratory judgment action against Blaze Mobile, Inc. and its CEO Michelle Fisher, seeking judgments of noninfringement for eight patents—generally related to various aspects of advertisements, near field communications technology, or financial transactions—through its provision of Samsung Pay, Samsung Ads, and Samsung Galaxy Store services, as well as any supported devices. Attached to the new complaint is a November 2020 letter sent to Samsung by Synergy IP Corporation, purporting to represent Blaze Mobile “with regard to the negotiation for licensing Blaze’s patent rights”, identifying by number the eight patents that are the subject of Samsung’s complaint, and indicating that Blaze “is strategically drafting its patent claims to cover other Samsung services in the United States”.
