AlmondNet Sues Oracle as Trial Against Amazon Begins

June 7, 2024

Trial is set to begin on June 10, 2024 in the Western District of Texas courtroom of Judge Alan D. Albright in a case that AlmondNet, Inc. filed, with its subsidiary Intent IQ, LLC, against Amazon (Amazon.com Services, Amazon Web Services) back in August 2021. In an April 2024 “Omnibus Order Regarding Pretrial Motions”, the court denied an Amazon motion challenging one asserted patent under Alice (because, per the court, its asserted claims are not directed to an abstract idea) and will now send to the jury the “issue as to conventionality” of the asserted claims of another patent. Meanwhile, in a new complaint filed in the same venue, AlmondNet and Intent IQ have accused Oracle (6:24-cv-00303) of infringing two other targeted advertisement patents. The accused products are Oracle’s BlueKai Data Management Platform, Oracle Data Cloud, Oracle ID Graph, and Oracle Marketing Cloud.
