Gummarus, LLC identifies as the accused product in its Eastern District of Texas suit (4:19-cv-00251) the Samsung Chatbot, an automated, browser-based technical support assistant that operates through instant messaging-style text chat, as used within a browser (like Google Chrome) running on a “personal computing device (e.g., a desktop computer, laptop computer, smartphone, tablet computer, etc.)”.
