groupon inc (GRPN) Key Developments

Blue Calypso, Inc. Files Motion to Lift Stay in Patent Infringement Cases and Appeal on Covered Business Method Review Decisions Between Company and Groupon, Yelp, Foursquare and IZEA

Blue Calypso, Inc. announced that it has filed a motion in the Eastern District of Texas to lift the negotiated stay on the pending patent infringement litigation between the Company and Groupon, Yelp, Foursquare and IZEA.PK. The company has filed notices of appeal at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in each of the Covered Business Method Review (CBMR) cases at the Patent Trial and Appeals Board. On January 14, 2014, the parties agreed to stay the litigation in the Eastern District pending the decisions from the PTAB as to validity of the patents. As a part of agreeing to join the stay, the parties jointly agreed to ask the court to lift the stay and for an expedited litigation schedule if any of the asserted claims were held valid by the PTAB. The PTAB now has confirmed the validity of twenty-eight claims and Blue Calypso, through its counsel, has asked the court to lift the stay according to the agreement. The companies refused to participate in the motion to lift the stay as previously agreed, and have instead asked the court to leave the stay in place in a separate motion. Additionally, on January 16, 2015, the company filed notices of appeal with the Federal Circuit on the PTAB's December 18, 2014 rulings on the five Covered Business Method Review petitions filed by Groupon in June and August of 2013. While the PTAB confirmed the validity of twenty-eight of the claims in four patents asserted against various defendants over Groupon's challenges, other claims in the patents were determined by the PTAB to be invalid. The company has now challenged the determination of the invalidity of these other claims.

Groupon Launches Private Label Wine Selection

Groupon announced a new line of private label wine, making it easier to keep a few bottles on hand for the holidays or test whether your postal carrier has been drinking your mail. Inspired by the company's mascot, Groupon the Cat, the line includes four wines, Snazzy Cat Chardonnay, Top Cat Merlot, Chatty Cat Cabernet Sauvignon and Jazzy Cat Pinot Noir and is sourced from some of California's best wine-growing regions, which are mostly located somewhere around the top part. The four wines include: Snazzy Cat Chardonnay: flavors of melon, pear and Fuji apple abound; hints of cinnamon, vanilla and a creamy finish make it a good match for seafood; Top Cat Merlot: vanilla and spice overlay flavors of blackberries and plum in a rich wine that's versatile enough to pair with many kinds of dishes; Chatty Cat Cabernet Sauvignon: ripe cherry and berry meet layers of mocha, black pepper and sweet preserves in this soft expression of the grape; this Cabernet is worthy of simply drinking on its own; Jazzy Cat Pinot Noir: notes of vanilla from French and American oak add complexity to the intense black cherry aromas and flavors; serve it with light pasta dishes or pork. Each type of wine is available for purchase in a package of six bottles. A sample option including all four wines is also available. The wine is exclusively featured on Groupon Goods.
