QR Codes and Dollar Signs and Typos, Oh My

March 2, 2022

Wepay Global Payments LLC has added Northern District of Illinois cases against Amazon (1:22-cv-01061), McDonald’s (1:22-cv-01064), and Walmart (1:22-cv-01062) and Western District of Texas suits against Apple (6:22-cv-00223) and Tesla (6:22-cv-00224) to the design patent campaign that it began last October. Wepay asserts a single (presumably) design patent, generally related to “display screen portion with animated graphical user interface”, although a set of “typos” appears to introduce a second design patent that currently available USPTO records suggest Wepay does not own. However that shakes out, the case against Apple has already been dismissed, with prejudice, just two days after its filing.
