On March 17, 2021, Jenam Tech, LLC (“Jenam Tech” or “Plaintiff”), represented by James M. Lennon of Devlin Law Firm LLC, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Google, LLC ( “Google” or “Defendant”), seeking injunctive relief and damages with prejudgment and post judgment interests among other reliefs, for alleged unlawful infringement of United States patents owned by Plaintiff. This case was filed in U.S. District Court in the Western District of Texas with Judge Alan D. Albright presiding.
The Plaintiff filed this complaint for the alleged infringement of United States Patent No. 10,951,742 entitled “Methods, Systems, and Computer Program Products for Sharing Information for Detecting at Least One Time Period for a Connection”(“the ʼ742 patent”) owned by the them.
The Plaintiff alleged that Google has infringed ‘742 Patent by “(i) making, using, selling, importing, and/or offering for sale one or more websites or web addresses including, but not limited to www.google.com, stored and/or hosted on one or more servers owned or under the control of Google, as well as other Google products and services including, but not limited to: Google Edge Network, Google Cloud, Chrome Enterprise, G suite , Google Play, Chrome, Android (Android Enterprise, Android Messages (RCS)), Duo, Google Ads, Adwords, Google Analytics, YouTube, Google Mobile apps, Google Shopping, and Google Maps (“Accused Software”); (ii) making, using, selling, importing, and/or offering for sale software for smartphones and tablets as well as other computing devices, or offering said software with such computing devices (e.g., Pixel phones, laptops, desktops, Chromebooks, etc.) (“Accused Products”); or (iii) regularly doing or soliciting business, engaging in other persistent courses of conduct, or deriving substantial revenue from goods and services provided to citizens and residents in Texas.”
Furthermore, Plaintiff alleged that upon information and belief that “Google has engaged in such actions with specific intent to cause infringement or with willful blindness to the resulting infringement because the Google has had actual knowledge of the ’742 patent and that its acts were inducing infringement of the ’742 patent since Google has had knowledge of the ’742 patent.”
The only claim for relief laid down by the Plaintiff is for the infringement of the ʼ742 patent in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271 (b), wherein it has been alleged that Google has induced and continues to induce others to infringe at least claims 1 and 78 of the ’742 by, among other things, and with specific intent or willful blindness, actively aiding and abetting others to infringe, including but not limited to Google’s partners and customers, whose use of the Accused Software and Accused Products constitutes direct infringement of at least claims 1 and 78 of the ’742 patent.
In its prayer for relief, the plaintiff has requested the court to declare that the Defendant has infringed the patent in suit and to award damages as claimed, with prejudgment and post judgment interests along with attorneys’ fees and enhanced damages as appropriate against Defendant as provided by 35 U.S.C. § 285 and other costs of litigation.
