Summit 6, LLC v. HTC and Apple

Representative Claim

  1. A computer readable medium containing a program adapted to implement the method of:

associating a media object with a media object identifier, the media object identifier being embedded within a third-party web site, the media object identifier including a graphical user interface for acquiring media objects; and

pre-processing the media object by the media object identifier for the requirements of the third-party web site, the pre-processing being done without user selection of the pre-processing.

Posture:

Defendants’ Rule 12(c) Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings.

Abstract Idea: No

The claims “are directed toward solving a problem particular to the internet.”  The claims address computer-related problems, including digital resizing, compression, and changing file formats.

Defendants made an analogy to pre-Internet publishing.  But, “Defendant’s brick-and-mortar analogy does not appropriately capture the covered concept.”

Something More: Yes

The claims used an outside application or program to make changes to a user’s image on the front end or order to comply with imaging requirements of another website.
