The second of two QR (Quick Response) Code campaigns litigated by frequent plaintiff Leigh M. Rothschild has snagged five more defendants in the early days of 2019. Suits against Delta Electronics (3:19-cv-00067), Driscoll’s (5:19-cv-00069), Hyland’s (2:19-cv-00079), Iconix Ecom (1:19-cv-00118), and TP-Link (8:19-cv-00019) brought the number of defendants hit by Coding Technologies, LLC above 80. As throughout the campaign, the NPE asserts in these new complaints a single patent generally related to information retrieval using a barcode. The number of defendants in the Coding Technologies campaign has yet to overtake the number tagged in Rothschild’s earlier QR code campaign, litigated by affiliates RFID Technology Innovations, LLC and Symbology Innovations, LLC, which neared 135 with the addition of three defendants (Converse, Pilot Corporation of America, and Vital Farms) this past November.
