General Patent Corporation (GPC) subsidiary MOAEC Technologies LLC has launched a litigation campaign, suing Deezer (1:18-cv-00375), SoundCloud (1:18-cv-00376), and Spotify (1:18-cv-00377) in separate Delaware complaints. The sole patent asserted generally relates to organizing music files for customized playback, with MOAEC’s infringement allegations focused on the defendants’ music services and related systems, including apps, websites, and other devices. GPC has waged over 50 campaigns since 1998, but this campaign is the NPE’s first since the fall of 2016.
