Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson has filed a
claiming that Landmark Technology has violated the state’s Patent
Troll Protection Act, which bans “bad faith” assertions of patent
infringement. Following a widespread campaign of patent demand
more than 30 states passed some kind of
placing limits on bad-faith patent assertions. […]
The Washington case reveals just how widespread Landmark’s threats
are. From January 2019 to July 2020, Landmark sent identical
demand letters to 1,176 small businesses all across the country.
Those letters threaten to sue unless Landmark gets paid a $65,000
licensing fee. Landmark essentially insists that if you use a
website for e-commerce, you infringe this patent.
Sounds like no one is going to be rooting for Landmark in this case other than their fellow patent trolls.
