Pointwise Ventures May Have More Amending to Do

July 5, 2024

In its sole litigation campaign, begun this past March, Pointwise Ventures LLC has filed its first July case, accusing Etsy (1:24-cv-04706) in an Eastern District of New York complaint of infringing the same “pointing and identification” device patent in suit across all 18 cases filed so far. The new complaint tracks the original pleadings filed in those other cases—but not the amended complaint that Pointwise filed on June 3 in its suit against Microsoft. There, the plaintiff fixed at least one errant statement, added to its prayer for relief a request for a judgment for past damages, and inserted ten paragraphs with material seemingly meant to fend off a future Alice challenge.
