March 14, 2019

A new affiliate of Empire IP LLC has filed its first litigation, suing IAC/InterActivecorp (Humor Rainbow) (1:19-cv-02318) in the Southern District of New York. Ghaly Devices LLC has accused Humor Rainbow of infringement through the provision of the OKCupid online dating service and mobile app. At issue are features that allow the user to select dating preferences by specifying personality traits derived from a personal profile system. The sole patent-in-suit is generally directed to a matchmaking interface allowing the user to select personality traits in that fashion.
