Express Mobile, Inc. v. KTree Computer Solutions Inc. et al., (Payne, J.) (E.D. Tex. May 4, 2017)
- 6,546,397 | Entitled, “Browser based web site generation tool and run time engine”
The court denied defendant’s motion to dismiss on the ground that the patent was not directed to an abstract idea.
Browser based web publishing application.
Claims were directed to “addressing a problem particular to the Internet, dynamically generating websites and displaying web pages based on stored user-selected settings.” As such, the issues were necessarily rooted in computer technology and directed to a specific solution for that issue. Rather than being a “do-it-on-a-computer” claim, these claims appeared to include an inventive concept. Thus, at this early stage dismissal was not warranted as the court believed claim construction and a more complete record were necessary to determine patent eligibility.
