Following its suit against Salesforce in April, inventor-controlled Implicit, LLC has expanded its first litigation campaign with a suit against PayPal (6:22-cv-00686) in the Western District of Texas. The asserted patents, categorized as among Implicit’s “Applet Patents”, are broadly directed to server technology for providing applets and applications to a client computer. PayPal is accused of infringement through the provision of products, including its consumer-facing web applications and the kraken.js middleware, that implement the Node.js JavaScript runtime environment. Since launching this, its first litigation campaign, in 2008, inventor Edward Balassanian—through Implicit and Implicit Networks, Inc.—has sued over 30 defendants and asserted a total of 14 patents (in overlapping sets).
