Dallas-based SMS is the plaintiff.

It has pursued legal action in response to alleged infringement of United States Patent Number 6,657,553.

Recent court documents state that the ‘553, which is entitled “Method of Monitoring a Protected Space,” was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Dec. 2, 2003.

“At a high level, the claimed methods and apparatuses of the ’553 Patent detect signal events occurring at a protected space, code the signal events into a packetized message, and transfer these coded packet messages to a database,” the complaints explain. “The coded packet messages are stored in reserved areas and subareas of the database in accordance with the type of signal event and the respective protected space. Additionally, the coded message packets are accessible via the internet.”

SMS seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

It is represented by attorney Andrew G. DiNovo and Daniel L. Schmid of the law firm DiNovo Price LLP in Austin.

The plaintiff Dynamic is based in Dallas.

It asserts ownership of U.S. Patent No. 6,446,111, having pursued legal action in an effort to curb purported infringement.

According to recent court papers, Keith A. Lowery is the inventor of the subject patent.

“The ’111 patent resulted from the pioneering research of Mr. Lowery in the area of website scalability and how websites could more efficiently and quickly process very large volumes of website visitor requests for web pages,” the complaints say.

Dynamic seeks unspecific monetary damages and a jury trial.

Attorneys Robert Kiddie, Timothy Devlin, and James M. Lennon of the law firm Devlin Law Firm LLC in Wilmington, Del. are representing the complainant.
