GeoComply has worked with the biggest figures in the gambling scene, whether that be giant corporations such as FanDuel and DraftKings, or state authorities and regulators. Their data reveals betting habits and trends, the number of transactions, and the amount of geographically unique areas gamblers place wagers in.
GeoComply says that it tracks over 10 billion transactions every year across over 400 million mobile devices.
The company released a statement addressing the ongoing legal situation with XPoint and said that it embraces competition but not stolen ideas.
On Friday, Jan. 27, GeoComply filed a preliminary injunction motion to immediately stop XPoint from continuing to sell what we believe is our stolen intellectual property, during the pendency of this lawsuit,” read the statement. “As we have shared repeatedly, GeoComply welcomes healthy competition and new ideas; intellectual property theft is neither.”
While GeoComply’s legal team is going hard at XPoint, the latter believes that it is protected from any legal repercussions because of precedent. According to them, judges have already ruled that geolocating services cannot be patented, and GeoComply’s case is baseless.
“...The claims neither recite an improvement to conventional methods for detecting programs nor specify how the program information is used to verify geolocation data,” XPoint’s court motion said. “The patent thus claims only an abstract result—not a patent-eligible technological improvement.”
XPoint has already filed a motion with US District Judge William C. Bryson to dismiss the case. He discussed the motion to dismiss during a teleconference Tuesday.
