Target Sued for Patent Infringement Over Imaging Capturing System

On Friday, plaintiff Lennon Image Technologies, LLC filed suit, alleging that defendant Target Corporation has and is infringing on its United States Patent No. 6,624,843 (the ‘843 patent). The Eastern District of Texas complaint explains that Lennon’s patent enables retailers to offer their customers a virtual try-on tool using a phone or mobile device camera. It claims that the “Target Beauty Studio Tool,” which permits users to try on makeup virtually, infringes one or more claims of the ‘843 patent.

The filing explains that Texas-based and organized Lennon owns the ‘843 patent by assignment. It was originally issued in September 2003 and is entitled, “Customer Image Capture and Use Thereof in a Retailing System,” the complaint avers. Specifically, “[t]he application that matured into the ’843 Patent was filed on December 8, 2000, and claims priority to a provisional application filed on December 10, 1999,” the filing explains. Allegedly, in 2017, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board issued a decision on appeal concerning the ’843 patent. The decision reportedly affirmed the patentability of certain original and new claims.
