Social Positioning Input Systems, LLC (SPIS) has filed a lawsuit in the Central District of California against ClearPathGPS, Inc., a fleet tracking management platform for patent infringement.
The plaintiff alleges that the ClearPathGPS infringed its patent-in-suit with United States Patent No. 9,261,365 (the ’365 patent) covering “Device, System, and Method for Remotely Entering, Storing and Sharing addresses for a Positional Information Device” without permission or a license.
The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant infringed on its patent by utilizing its patented GPS tracking method which covers a method and apparatus for entering, storing, and sharing addresses for a positional information device.
According to the plaintiff, ClearPathGPS allegedly infringed at least claim 1 of the ’365 patent by making, using, importing, selling, and/or offering for sale associated hardware and software for asset locating services including the ClearPathGPS fleet tracking platform, app, and other related hardware and software which uses features covered in the plaintiff’s patent.
The plaintiff reportedly accused the defendant of direct, indirect, contributory, and induced infringement.
The plaintiff is seeking a declaratory judgment in its favor, an order enjoining the defendant from further infringement, an award for damages, pre-and post-judgment interest and costs, and other relief.
The case is ongoing.
