ITC Institutes Investigation as to Amazon, Apple, and Verizon in Cloud Computing Campaign

April 6, 2019

Last week, the International Trade Commission (ITC) instituted an investigation in response to a February complaint that Irish NPE Data Scape Limited filed, together with New York provider of LED ticker displays C-Scape Consulting Corp., against Amazon, Apple, and Verizon (337-TA-1150). Data Scape asserts three patents—generally related to storing and syncing data files in a distributed computing environment—in its ITC complaint that are already at issue in district court cases in the campaign, which the NPE began in Germany in 2017. In addition to the three ITC respondents, the list of defendants in Data Scape’s campaign includes Barracuda Networks, Box, Citrix, Dell, Dropbox, F5 Networks, Fujitsu, Pandora, SpotifyTeradata, and Western Digital. Data Scape seeks to satisfy the domestic industry requirement based on the activities of two identified licensees of the patents asserted: iCandy and Oracle.
