Greater Boston Authentication Solutions, LLC v. Autodesk, Inc., Juniper Networks, Inc., National Instruments Corp., and Siemens PLM Software.

Greater Boston Authentication Solutions (GBAS) filed four separate lawsuits, alleging infringement of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,982,892, 6,567,793 and 7,346,583 by Autodesk (18-cv-10215), Juniper Networks (18-cv-10217), National Instruments Corp. (18-cv-10218), and Siemens PLM Software (18-cv-10219). The patented technology covers authorization and unlocking of electronic data using cryptographic authentication, and the patents are related as a continuation and CIP of the ‘892 patent.  GBAS accuses these companies of infringement via their license and authentication software, and seeks damages and attorney’s fees, but (given that the patents recently expired) not injunctive relief.
