IBM and HP Sued by Backweb for Patent Infringement

BackWeb Technologies Ltd., an Israel based Internet software company, has announced filing lawsuits in the United States District Court in San Francisco, California against IBM and HP. Backweb alleges patent infringement and is seeking damages, an injunction and a declaration by the Court that the IBM and HP software update technologies infringe BackWeb’s patents.

The company alleges that IBM’s Tivoli Provisioning Manager for Software product and IBM’s recently acquired BigFix products infringe four U.S. patents owned by BackWeb covering methods for transmitting information between a remote network and a local computer and distributed client-based data caching systems.

BackWeb also alleges that HP’s Client Automation product infringes three U.S. patents owned by BackWeb covering methods for transmitting information between a remote network and a local computer.

Back in June, Backweb settled out of court with Microsoft.
