Native American tribe sues Amazon and Microsoft over patents

St. Regis Mohawk Tribe / Aurich Lawson

The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe has filed patent lawsuits against Amazon and Microsoft, using patents it acquired from a company called SRC Labs, according to reports in Reuters and CNBC.

Until recently, the patents were owned by a holding company called SRC Labs, which is a co-plaintiff in today’s lawsuit. The lawsuits against Amazon and Microsoft are the second and third lawsuits filed by patent-holding companies working together with Native American tribes. Patent-holding companies, sometimes derided in the tech industry as “patent trolls,” produce no goods or services and make their revenue from filing lawsuits.

At least two patent-holding companies have chosen to give their patents to Native American tribes, seeking to benefit from tribal “sovereign immunity” that could avoid certain types of patent reviews at the US Patent Office.

SRC Labs was founded in 1996 to continue the “legacy of innovation” of Seymour R. Cray, who died that same year. Cray was a pioneer in large-scale computer systems and established the operating company Cray Inc. Today SRC Labs’ website doesn’t advertise products, just dozens of patents, organized by year.

The patent-holding company is following in the footsteps of Allergan, a drug company that gave six patents covering its $1.5 billion eye medication Restasis to the St. Regis tribe last month. Allergan lawyers are seeking to shut down an inter partes review of the patents taking place at the Patent Trial and Appeals Board, by claiming the patents now benefit from tribal sovereign immunity. The move by Allergan may be a moot point, because the drug company just lost its patents in district court.

However, the strategy practiced by Allergan and its affiliated lawyers is catching on quickly. Today’s lawsuit is the second time that a patent-holding company has teamed up with a Native American tribe to sue a technology company. MEC Resources, a company wholly owned by the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation, sued Apple last month, seeking to get patent royalties on the iPad 4.

Sovereign advantages

Some patent holders are clearly eager to apply sovereign immunity to their patents, but it isn’t yet clear how well the strategy will work. The single federal judge who has weighed in on the issue did so earlier this week, expressing “serious concerns” about a strategy to essentially “rent” sovereign immunity.

If it does work, the advantages could be considerable. State universities have a different form of sovereign immunity, and in at least two cases, universities have stopped patent reviews from moving forward at the Patent Trial and Appeals Board. Public universities also have a big advantage in federal court, because potential defendants can’t file a declaratory judgment lawsuit against them to challenge their patents. In other words, they have to wait to be sued before they can fight back. This effectively gives universities the ability to choose when and where to fight patent battles.

Unlike the sovereign immunity granted to state universities, however, Native American sovereign immunity can be altered or revoked by Congress. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who has called Allergan’s St. Regis deal a “brazen and absurd” loophole, has introduced a bill to do just that.

Allergan agreed to pay the St. Regis Tribe $13.5 million up front for the patent deal, and $15 million per year as long as the patents stayed valid. It isn’t clear exactly what kind of compensation St. Regis is getting from the SRC Labs deal, but the Tribe’s FAQ on its patent deals says the litigation is all being handled on a contingent-fee basis. That means money from settlements or damages will be split between the law firm, and the Tribe, with SRC Labs likely getting a cut as well.

Supercomputer Patents

The SRC Labs / St. Regis lawsuit asserts that the following six patents are infringed by Microsoft: US Patent Nos. 6,076,152; 6,247,110; 6,434,687; 7,225,324; 7,421,524; and 7,620,800. They relate generally to large multi-processor computer systems and re-configurable processors. All list Jon Huppenthal, co-founder and CEO of SRC Computers, as an inventor.

Amazon was sued using the ‘687, ‘324, and ‘800 patents, all linked above, as well as US Patent Nos. 7,149,867 and 9,153,311. The two patents asserted solely against Amazon have different inventors, but also originated at SRC Computers.

The complaint, which was filed in federal court in Virginia, isn’t yet available from the courts database. Ars will update this post with the complaint when it becomes available.

Inventor Huppenthal didn’t respond to a request for comment about the case, and an e-mail to SRC Labs bounced back as undeliverable. The company’s phone number and website registration information is obscured by a privacy service.

Attorneys representing the tribe, from the firm Shore Chan DePumpo LLP, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Rumored Elite North American Call of Duty WWII Teams Still Waiting to be Confirmed | Esports News & Videos

The anticipation for Simply call of Duty WWII’s launch is building, but we continue to never know who some of the most high profile players will be competing for.

The close of the Infinite Warfare period was signaled by OpTic Gaming lifting the CWL Championship 2017 trophy at the Amway Heart, confirming their posture as the biggest Simply call of Duty team of all time.

Whilst they were being celebrating, rival specialist players straight away acquired to work hoping to work out how to beat the reigning champions when anything returned to boots on the floor. This resulted in a huge roster shuffle with only 5 groups of the thirty-two in attendance sticking together.

In the aftermath, we noticed the development of the new Evil Geniuses lineup featuring the likes of  Patrick ‘Aches’ Value and Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt, Increase Nation announced they’d dropped Brice ‘Faccento’ Faccento in favor of Tommy ‘TJHaly’ Haly and finally, Splyce swapped Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris for Tom ‘Tommey’ Trewren.

We also noticed lineups confirmed for Purple Reserve, Enigma6, Infused and Period Eternity.

Even with all these improvements, we’ve not listened to a peep from some of the greatest names in the Simply call of Duty scene, but we have listened to rumors.


Team EnVyUs

After dropping the trio of Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov, John ‘J0hn’ Perez and Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan, we’ve yet to listen to officially what’s occurring with EnVy’s squad for WWII.

Austin ‘Slasher’ Liddicoat is expected to keep his posture as team captain, with Nicholas ‘Classic’ DiCostanzo joining from the aged Luminosity Gaming team. The system appears to be to be to deliver onboard youthful expertise Donny ‘Temp’ Laroda, formerly of Str8 Rippin, and finally cap the team off with Halo pro player Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland.

So if the squad is all but confirmed, why have not Team EnVyUs manufactured an announcement?

The logical clarification is that owing to the Halo competitors at Dreamhack Denver, EnVy is ready until eventually Huke plays his remaining activity with his squad in advance of transitioning again to Simply call of Duty.


Go through Far more:



Luminosity Gaming

With the noted departure of Vintage to Team EnVyUs and Renato ‘Saints’ Forza to Echo Fox (see beneath), that still left two spaces to fill alongside Josiah ‘Slacked’ Berry and Sam ‘Octane’ Larew.

The reports have reported from the commencing that EnVyUs players JKap and John will be filling the slot, but so far we’ve not listened to any sort of official announcement.

Just one idea building the rounds was that the team hadn’t made a decision if they desired to play for LG, and had been searching for presents somewhere else, but they glance to set to keep place immediately after John retweeted a Luminosity Scuf controller design. An announcement is expected, but for LG fans, continue to worryingly overdue.


FaZe Clan

The FaZe Clan Simply call of Duty team that formed during Highly developed Warfare under James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks finally arrived to an close during the Infinite Warfare period, when a hasty trade noticed Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman transfer from eUnited.

With Allow off to play for Evil Geniuses, it still left Gunless with Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparratto and Dillon ‘Attach’ Value. It’s considered three will turn out to be two as Gunless is also reportedly off to Echo Fox (see beneath), with previous mentor and AW environment champion Chris ‘Replays’ Crowder building a comeback and up and coming player Preston ‘Priest’ Griener completing the team.

No official announcement has been manufactured by FaZe Clan or the players yet, but it’s just a issue of time.


Go through Far more:


Echo Fox

The remaining team in this short article is the rumored lineup that is expected to characterize Echo Fox heading into the new period.

The players have all been dropped from their previous lineups, building this some thing of a most effective of the relaxation sort of team. As stated above we see Saints from Luminosity and Gunless from FaZe, Faccento joins immediately after being introduced from Increase and Adam ‘Assault’ Garcia completes the team immediately after Cloud9 disbanded.

Of the four groups in the listing, this is the roster that is the the very least talked about, but it has been reported that they’ve signed for Echo Fox, owned by NBA legend, Rick Fox.

EF has been concerned with Simply call of Duty due to the fact Black Ops III, but they’ve struggled to discover players who can problem for titles. Could this roster improve that?
