After a Decade of Litigation Life, SoftVault’s Campaign Sees Five More Defendants Added in November...So Far

November 12, 2016

SoftVault Systems, Inc. has added yet more cases to its long-running litigation campaign. The NPE, controlled by named inventors, has asserted two familiar patents (6,249,8686,594,765) against Adobe (4:16-cv-06474), AVG Technologies (4:16-cv-06471), F-Secure (4:16-cv-06473), Kony (4:16-cv-06469), and Oracle (4:16-cv-06454). The patents generally relate to remotely disabling hardware or software components of a computing device via interaction between an “embedded agent” in the component and a remote server. Throughout the campaign, SoftVault has targeted mechanisms for remote locking/disabling/activation, for these latest defendants, “the vast majority” of Adobe’s application software, AVG’s Managed Workplace, F-Secure’s SAFE software, Kony’s MobileFabric Platform and Management software, and Oracle’s Mobile Security Suite.
