Patent Filings Roundup: U.S. Tractor Retailer Hit; TikTok Sued by Triller; IP Edge Entities Dominate District Court Filings

By Jonathan Stroud
August 6, 2020

Patent Filings - https://depositphotos.com/182092430/stock-photo-patent-law-gavel-word-patent.htmlThis week, district courts saw 91 new patent complaints, a large portion filed by IP Edge subsidiaries, such as Karetek Holdings, LLC; Guada Technologies; Tunnel IP, LLC; Altair Logix, LLC; Coretek Licensing, LLC; and Raindrops Licensing, LLC, with the rest being Intellectual Ventures selloffs, company-to-company disputes (like the Skull Shaver, LLC v. Freedom Grooming design patent case), and some pharmaceutical filings.

There were 17 discretionary denials under Section 325; 41 PTAB petitions filed—one post grant review (PGR) and 40 inter partes reviews (IPRs)—a number buttressed largely by Amazon filing seven IPRs against VB Assets, LLC – an assertion vehicle apparently spun out of AI-voice company, VoiceBox, after Nuance purchased them last year – as well as Samsung filing five IPRs against Clear Imaging Research, LLC, an entity run by the former co-founder of Soryn IP. This was rounded out by a five-IPR battle between Monolitic Power Systems and Volterra Semiconductor over licensing semiconductor technology.

Fairly Tractable: The Tractor Supply Company, a U.S.-based retail chain headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, is the latest retailer to be sued by an NPE aggregator—here Endpoint IP—in the Western District of Texas amid the deepening economic crisis in retail.  It wasn’t immediately clear from either the companies’ history or the complaint what ties either company has to the forum beyond a few retail stores and a registered agent for service of process. The accused product is a feature found on their website. The case, brought under the Endpoint subsidiary Arden Innovations LLC, features just one patent: U.S. 9,459,774.

Alternative TikTok: TikTok competitor Triller has lashed out at the recently beleaguered video-sharing company, accusing the app developer (and Chinese parent ByteDance) of infringing U.S. Patent 9,691,429, Systems and Methods for Creating Music Videos Synchronized with an Audio Track. Both apps’ primary feature allows users to easily upload videos over authorized audio tracks; Triller brought suit in the Western District of Texas’ Waco Division, before Judge Albright. No word yet on whether they’ll allow mediation via rap battle or online dance-off, or whether service was made by Triller in a manilla envelope.

Semi-Monolithic: Monolitic Power Systems and Volterra Semiconductor battle it out; this week five IPRs were filed by Monolithic on patents asserted by Volterra in December of 2019 in Delaware District Court, 1:19-cv-02240 on three patents, well within the one-year window. The petitions run well over 100 pages at times, given the complex nature of the subject matter. These are the first challenges to these patents, filed by Lionel Lavenue and Cory Bell of Finnegan.  Volterra is in turn owned by Maxim Integrated Products, per the complaint.
