    Market Sector: E-Commerce and Software

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.
