Patent Filings Roundup: Joao Sub Hauls Shipping Industry into Albright’s Court; IP Investments Sub Targets Realty Companies with IV Patents

patent filings roundup - https://depositphotos.com/159708306/stock-photo-legal-battleand-lawsuit.htmlWith 69 new district court patent filings and 24 Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) challenges (all inter partes reviews), it was a now-routine end-of-the-month filing spree for IP Edge subsidiaries, with 23 new complaints by such entities. The PTAB dockets continue to be dominated by cases against litigation-funded entities like Magentar Capital’s Scramoge, Fortress IP’s VLSI and Jawbone, and WSOU, plus the seemingly now-regular trickle of cases between Apple and Ericsson. Big-ticket assertor Agis Software disclaimed challenged claims in an IPR brought by Google and Samsung, thus cancelling the claims; and some ANDA-related litigation kicked off before various district courts.

IP Investments Sub Targets Redfin with Cobbled-Together IV Patents: Atlanta-based monetizer IP Investments, which largely subsists on IV patent selloffs with a backend, has brought a new suit under Alto Dynamics LLC against Redfin Corp. on seven patents of various vintage. The patents—at first blush, rather broad—allegedly read on the use of cookies on websites. The case was predictably brought before Judge Albright in the Waco division of West Texas.

Paragraph IV Suit Targets Successful Amgen Dialysis Drug:  Aurobindo filed a Paragraph VI litigation against Amgen’s Parsabiv® product (etelcalcetide), a drug used to treat hyperparathyroidism in adult patients with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis. The product has been gaining ground in the lucrative market for years.

Raymond Anthony Joao Sub Continues to Hammer Shipping Industry: The most recent Joao-run campaign, Transcend Shipping Systems, continues to throw the book at the shipping industry, with 33 mostly expired shipping container patents being asserted, this time against Premier Trailer Leasing in Judge Albright’s court. At least 10 regional and international shipping companies have now been hauled into Albright’s court by the NPE, including J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Carrier Global, Mediterranean Shipping Company, Hapag-Lloyd, Sonoco, and ZIM Integrated Shipping, with no signs of stopping (and no eyelids batted at a 33-patent assertion).

    For what it’s worth, I know “hale” is correct, but at this point hale confuses enough readers that we went with haul for the headline.
