Number of Cases in Online Tiled Product Display Campaign Doubles

September 22, 2017

Cases against American Eagle Outfitters (2:17-cv-00658), Charlotte Russe Holdings (2:17-cv-00660), and The Buckle (2:17-cv-00659) have been added to the campaign that IDB Ventures LLC, an affiliate of patent monetization firm IP Valuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal), began this past summer. In July, IDB Ventures picked up the assertion of a single patent seen in two prior litigation campaigns. Execware, LLC, with the help of IP Navigation Group, LLC (d/b/a IPNav), asserted the patent in a campaign running from September 2011 to August 2016, at which time the patent was assigned to Listou Search Technologies LLC, an affiliate of Empire IP LLC. Listou Search Technologies then asserted it in a short-lived second campaign, from September 2016 to May 2017. The patent generally relates to changing a computer display based on entries in a dialog box, and the accused products, throughout all three campaigns, have been the various defendants’ websites, in particular, the tiled product displays presented based on the selection of certain features (e.g., color, size, etc.).
