AlmondNet, Inc., et al. v. Amazon.com, Inc., et al.

Case Summary

On August 27, 2021, AlmondNet, Inc. and Intent IQ, LLC (collectively “Plaintiffs” or “AlmondNet”), represented by James Milkey, Marc A. Fenster and Reza Mirzaie of Russ August & Kabat, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Amazon.com, Inc., Amazon.com Services LLC and Amazon Web Services, Inc. (collectively, “Defendant” or “Microsoft”). Plaintiffs filed suit seeking an accounting of damages along with compensatory damages, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, cost, and attorneys’ fees for the alleged infringement of each of the Asserted Patents owned by Plaintiffs. This case was filed in the United States District Court in the Western District of Texas with Judge Alan D. Albright presiding.

 

Plaintiffs filed the complaint for the alleged infringement of the U.S. Patent No. 8,244,586, (’586 patent); U.S. Patent No. 8,244,582 (‘582 patent); U.S. Patent No. 8,677,398 (’398 patent); U.S. Patent No. 8,775,249 (‘249 patent); U.S. Patent No. 7,979,307 (‘307 patent); U.S. Patent No. 8,959,146 (‘146 patent); U.S. Patent No. 8,671,139 (‘139 patent); U.S. Patent No. 7,822,639 (’639 patent); U.S. Patent No. 9,508,089 (‘089 patent); U.S. Patent No. 9,830,615 (‘615 patent) (collectively, “Asserted Patents”) owned by Plaintiffs.

 

In the complaint, Plaintiffs alleged that, “On information and belief, Defendant makes, uses, offers for sale, sells, and/or imports certain products (“Accused Products”), such as, e.g., Amazon’s advertising platform, that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, claims of the ’586 patent.”

 

Plaintiffs further alleged that, “On information and belief, Defendant makes, uses, offers for sale, sells, and/or imports certain products (“Accused Products”), such as, e.g., Amazon’s advertising platform, that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, claims of the ‘582 patent.”

 

Plaintiffs alleged that, “On information and belief, Defendant makes, uses, offers for sale, sells, and/or imports certain products (“Accused Products”), such as, e.g., Amazon’s advertising platform, that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, claims of the ‘398 patent.”

 

Plaintiff has made similar claims for alleged infringement of the other Asserted Patents.

 

There are ten claims for relief laid down by Plaintiffs, one for infringement of each of the Asserted Patents.

 

In the prayer for relief, Plaintiffs have requested the Court to pass a judgement in favor of Plaintiffs saying that the Defendants have willfully infringed, either literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, each of the Asserted Patents. Plaintiffs have also requested the Court for permanent injunction prohibiting Defendants from further acts of infringement of each of the ’398, ’146, ’139, ’639, ’089, and ’615 patents along with an award of accounting and damages adequate to compensate Plaintiff for Defendant’s acts of infringement, together with prejudgment and post-judgment interests and costs pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 285 or any other relief that the Court deem appropriate and just.
