September 17, 2021

Aire Technology Limited (f/k/a Bowen Ventures Limited), yet another NPE formed in Ireland and associated with Atlantic IP Services Limited, has filed its first lawsuit. In a new Western District of Texas complaint, Aire accuses Samsung (6:21-cv-00955) of infringing four former G+D patents generally related to secure contactless communications between devices through the provision of devices (e.g., smartphones and smart watches) that support Near Field Communication (NFC) and other mobile payment applications, such as Samsung Pay and Google Pay. Aire joins a long and growing list of Irish NPEs to assert former operating company patents in US courts.
