AOPA responds to patent infringement lawsuit

On Oct. 7, AOPA responded to the SD Holdings (SDH) patent infringement lawsuit. AOPA alternatively moved to dismiss the lawsuit or have the lawsuit moved from Oregon to Maryland.

AOPA requests dismissal due to the fact that there is no basis for SDH’s patent infringement allegations against “FlyQ Web,” AOPA’s online aviation flight planning tool that is available to members free of charge. AOPA explains that SDH does not assert a tenable claim of patent infringement, and therefore that the only allegation of patent infringement is defective, and that SDH lacks any good-faith basis to assert patent infringement against AOPA.

In the event that the Oregon court declines to dismiss SDH’s complaint, the motion also requests the transfer of the case to Maryland.
