Uber (1:21-cv-00918) has also been sued by Digi Portal LLC, an apparent IP Edge LLC plaintiff, over a family of five patents generally related to delivering customized webpages to Internet users. Uber is accused of infringement through the provision of its website, with features for delivering customized webpages and targeted advertisements to users based on collected information (e.g., demographics or location data). The suit comes as District Judge Maryellen Noreika has denied multiple concurrent motions challenging claims from the five patent under Alice, noting that “it is not an efficient use of the Court’s time to address the patent eligibility of more than seventy claims from the asserted patents—even with purportedly representative groupings—at the motion to dismiss stage, particularly where the parties dispute whether those claims are representative”.
