The plaintiff Mantis, which is based in Plano, has pursued legal action in response to alleged infringement of seven United States Patents entitled “System and Method to Initiate a Mobile Data Communication Utilizing a Trigger System.”
Per recent court documents, the subject patents relate back to a provisional patent application dated July 19, 2002.
“The patents-in-suit claim specific systems and methods to enable organizations to execute direct marketing techniques and promotions by engaging users in a more convenient way by triggering interactions through their mobile communication devices,” the complaints state. “The claims of the patents-in-suit are directed at a technical solution to solve a problem unique to computer communications networks and related devices – initiating a communication between an organization and a user of a mobile device triggered by an initial request or interaction by the user.”
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
