Friday, January 07, 2011

TBS client Deep9 Corporation has sued Barnes & Noble alleging that Barnes & Noble's popular Nook and Nookcolor e-readers infringe on Deep9's patents. The complaint alleges that the Nook, the best selling item in Barnes & Noble's nearly 40-year history, infringes on Deep9's patents for the invention of a novel method for updating an online database over a network. Deep9's founder, David Campbell, obtained the patents beginning in 1999. Deep9 is represented by Tousley Brain Stephens attorneys Kim Stephens, Mark Deife and Chase Alvord, attorneys Jonathan Selbin and Eric Fastiff of the San Francisco-based firm, Leiff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein LLP, and the Law Office of Christian E. Mammen.
