Lenovo’s Computing Devices at Issue in First Case Filed over Content Delivery Patent

January 17, 2018

Last month, RPX noted the December 2017 transfer of 21 patent assets, broadly related to content delivery, from Strategic Intellectual Solutions, Inc. (SIS) to its subsidiary DoDots Licensing Solutions, Inc. The latter has now filed its first lawsuit, accusing Lenovo (Motorola Mobility) (1:18-cv-00098) of infringing one of those transferred assets through the manufacture and sale of certain desktop, laptop, and tablet computers, as well as certain smartphones. DoDots Licensing’s complaint recounts the rise and fall of the patent’s original developer, DoDots, Inc., through the “industry-wide dot com bubble burst” after that company sought to “commercialize a novel and completely unconventional approach to delivering content via the Internet in the form of connected widgets or applications called ‘Dots’ rather than via a web browser”.
