In New Campaign, Uniloc Asserts More Former IBM Patents, Recently Acquired, Against a Familiar Five Defendants

March 10, 2017

Uniloc Luxembourg S.A. and Uniloc USA, Inc. (Uniloc) have launched their first new campaign in over six months, suing Box (2:17-cv-00173), Churchill Downs (Big Fish Games) (2:17-cv-00172), Nutanix (2:17-cv-00174), Ubisoft (2:17-cv-00175), and ZenDesk (2:17-cv-00176) over two former IBM patents (6,110,228; 6,564,229). The ‘228 patent generally relates to updating software remotely; the ‘229 patent, to pausing while copying data from one location to another. The NPE has targeted similar features in each of the five defendants’ software products that allow for customer-requested or automated updates over the Internet. Big Fish Games and Ubisoft are accused of infringing the ‘229 patent through their games download portals, within which Uniloc points to the ability to pause the download of a requested game while computer resources are used for other things, before the download later resumes.
