Latest Iron Oak Complaint Targets Remote Update and Automatic Connection Features in Windows-Based Laptops and Tablets of HP

November 10, 2017

As the litigation campaign of inventor-controlled Iron Oak Technologies LLC closes in on the one-year mark, the NPE has added an eleventh defendant, HP (1:17-cv-01068), in the Western District of Texas. Iron Oak asserts two patents at issue throughout the campaign against HP for provision of laptops and tablets: one generally related to remotely patching the operating code of a mobile device, and the other broadly concerns automatically selecting a path over which a computer is to communicate. The new complaint follows similar complaints filed earlier against Acer, ASUS, Fujitsu, Lenovo, and Dell, with additional products (e.g., smartphones, smart TVs, printers) added to the mix in lawsuits filed against Pantech, Samsung, Sharp, and Sierra Wireless.
