With New Gaming Complaint Against Niantic, 2020 Sees a Summer of Litigation for NantWorks
Biotech and Pharma, New Patent Litigation
Roughly one week after suing Bank of America, NantWorks, LLC and its subsidiary Nant Holdings IP, LLC have accused Niantic (3:20-cv-06262) of patent infringement in a new Northern District of California complaint, while The Fox Chase Cancer Center Foundation and Institute of Cancer Research (collectively, FCCC) have removed a licensing dispute filed against NantKwest, Inc. (a “member of the NantWorks ecosystem of companies”) in state court to the Southern District of California (3:20-cv-01786). The suit against Bank of America involves mobile check deposits; the case against Niantic targets augmented reality (AR) mobile gaming apps, including the Pokemon Go and Harry Potter apps; and the licensing dispute with FCCC now also contests the inventorship of a cancer treatment patent.

Mobile Deposit System Targeted in New Complaint Against Bank of America
New Patent Litigation
NantWorks, LLC and its subsidiary Nant Holdings IP, LLC have filed suit against Bank of America (2:20-cv-07872), alleging infringement through provision of its mobile banking system of eight patents broadly directed to identifying objects from digitally captured images. The plaintiffs also plead copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, and breach of contract claims arising from an alleged set of interactions stretching from 2010 to 2018, beginning with a potential joint project (to develop improved mobile check deposit software) and ending shortly after the purported discovery of activity reports in a development database related to software used as part of the earlier failed collaboration.
