Ripple files motion to dismiss patent infringement case

by | Jan 14, 2020

Cooperative Entertainment Inc., a company based in Raleigh, North Carolina (US), filed a lawsuit for patent infringement against Ripple on September 25, 2019. The patent in dispute (U.S. Patent No. 9,432,452) was filed in 2013 by Cooperative Entertainment and it describes “Systems and Methods for Dynamic Networked P2P Content Distribution”.

The plaintiff claimed that RippleNet infringed on their patent and requested:

(a) Judgment that Ripple Labs has directly infringed the ‘452 patent;
(b) For a fair and reasonable royalty;
(c) For pre-judgment interest and post-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law; and
(d) For such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.

Ripple had until January 9, 2020 to respond to the original complaint, which it did. Ripple has filed to “Dismiss the Complaint for Failure to State a Claim and Memorandum of Points and Authorities”. The motion hearing has been set for February 13th, with responses and replies due by January 23rd and January 30th respectively.
