AlmondNet, Inc., et al. v. Microsoft Corporation

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 Microsoft Corporation (“Defendant” or “Microsoft”), seeking an accounting of damages along with compensatory damages, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, and costs 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.

 

The 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, the 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., Microsoft’s advertising platform, that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, claims of the ’586 patent.”

 

The 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., Microsoft’s advertising platform, that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, claims of the ‘582 patent.”

 

The 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., Microsoft’s advertising platform, that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, claims of the ‘398 patent.”

 

The Plaintiffs have made similar claims for the alleged infringement of the other Asserted Patents.

 

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

 

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