Hold On to Your Applets, Parallel Networks (by Another Name) Is Back

December 16, 2017

Parallel Networks LLC has infused the largest of its five litigation campaigns with fresh life, transferring the sole patent-in-suit to a managed subsidiary, Dynamic Applet Technologies, LLC, for assertion in new cases filed against Haverty Furniture (4:17-cv-00861), Mattress Firm and Sleepy’s (4:17-cv-00860), Petsmart (4:17-cv-00861), and Urban Outfitters (4:17-cv-00862). The patent generally relates to client-server communications, with the defendants accused of infringement through the operation of their retail websites. Parallel Networks asserted the same patent against over 120 different companies, beginning in 2009; just last month, one of several appeals to the Federal Circuit finally ended the last open litigation.
