IQ Biometrix, Inc. v. Perfect World Entertainment, Inc. et al.


United States District Court for N.D. Illinois, Eastern Division


Case No.: 1:09-cv-03180, Filed May 27, 2009


We previously wrote about IQ Biometrix bringing suit against Perfect World et al. in May because the avatar customization available in the online game Perfect World allegedly infringed two of IQ Biometrix’s patents. It appears that a joint motion to dismiss, filed August 3, was granted on August 5 pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2) (for voluntary dismissal). The case has been dismissed in its entirety with prejudice.
Appeal Update: Fenner Investments Ltd. v. Microsoft et al.
Case Settled: Yahoo v. NFL Players Association
