IP Edge Affiliate Launches New Payment Campaign in the Eastern District of Texas Against Two Out-of-State LLC Subsidiaries

  • E-Commerce and Software, New Patent Litigation

Vaultet LLC, an apparent affiliate of monetization firm IP Edge LLC, has launched a litigation campaign, asserting a single patent (7,814,009) in separate cases filed against LLC subsidiaries of Avis Budget Group (Avis Rent A Car System LLC) (6:17-cv-00366) and Disney (Disney Store USA LLC) (6:17-cv-00362). The ‘009 patent generally relates to retail systems permitting anonymous purchases, with infringement allegations against Disney focusing on the use of PayPal, and for Avis on the use of gift cards and American Express cards, each as methods of payment on the companies’ websites. In an apparent nod to the US Supreme Court’s TC Heartland decision, each new complaint pleads proper venue in the Eastern District of Texas with more particularity than usual for IP Edge affiliates.
