On December 2nd, MyMail, Ltd. filed a patent-infringement complaint against Lexmark International in the United State District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

According to the complaint, MyMail alleges that Lexmark infringed on its ‘318 patent (U.S. Patent No. 8,732,318) that MyMail filed on April 16, 2003. The ‘318 patent consists of a method and device to simplify the process of access to a network for a roaming computer user. It also divides the responsibility of servicing a given user wishing to access the network between multiple parties.

MyMail alleges that Lexmark infringed its ‘318 patent by applying the method in various actions, including making, using, offering for sale, and/or selling color and monochrome printers, copiers, scanners, and other multi-function devices.

MyMail is a Texas-based intellectual-property development and licensing company that says it provides “secure and Internet-related technologies.” It’s requesting that Lexmark pay for damages, costs, expenses, fees, and prejudgment and post-judgment interest for the alleged infringement.
