Irish NPE Launches Cloud Computing Campaign

December 31, 2018

Data Scape Limited, an NPE formed in Ireland in January 2017, has launched its first litigation campaign, asserting subsets of eight patents in separate cases filed against Apple (2:18-cv-10659), Citrix (2:18-cv-10658), Pandora (2:18-cv-10656), Spotify (2:18-cv-10653), and Western Digital (8:18-cv-02285) in the Central District of California, and against Dell (6:18-cv-00658), Fujitsu (6:18-cv-00659), and SAP (6:18-cv-00660) in the Eastern District of Texas. The patents belong to two families, both broadly pertaining to storing and syncing data files in a distributed computing environment and both received through a March 2017 assignment from Sony. That transaction involved over 20 issued US patents, together with foreign counterparts issuing in Canada, Europe, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, and the United Kingdom. Data Scape targets products and services of the defendants that sync documents and data (e.g., music files) across servers and client devices.
