Pinpoint v. Amazon.com

May 31, 2005

Amazon.com was sued by Pinpoint for infringement of several patents encompassing the recommendation systems used on the Amazon.com website. After the first day of trial, we secured a dismissal, convincing the court that Pinpoint's witnesses (the principal inventors) were not credible regarding ownership of the patent. Judge Posner granted judgment dismissing plaintiff's claim. 347 F.Supp.2d 579 (N.D. Ill. 2005).
