Factor2 Appears to Have Taken a Shot at USPTO Information Systems

March 30, 2024

Virtually nothing has happened on the docket of the District of Columbia case that Factor2 Multimedia Systems, LLC filed against ByteDance (TikTok) this past January. The plaintiff has now sued Amazon (1:24-cv-00337) and Snap (1:24-cv-00336), both in the Western District of Texas, as well as (perhaps) the United States of America (1:24-cv-00475, 1:24-cv-00477), the last two complaints filed in the US Court of Federal Claims but apparently misidentifying Snap as the defendant—twice. The same six authentication patents are asserted across the board, against user verification features, with the US government targeted over “the system which provides two factor authenticated access to: USPTO.gov; MyUSPTO; MyUSPTO account; Patent Electronic System; EFS-Web; PAIR; and Patent Center, including the ‘2stable’ app[,] and distributes content and authenticates users on the USPTO site”.
