COMPLAINT 602246790v1
- 2 -
Case No.
a Virginia limited liability company having a principal place of business at 601 North King Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314.
JURISDICTION AND VENUE
3.
 
These claims arise under the patent laws of the United States, 35 U.S.C. § 101
et  seq.
 and under the declaratory judgment act, 28 U.S.C. §§ 2201 and 2202. In view of the  previous filing by Pragmatus of a Complaint for Patent Infringement against ZTE (USA) and in view of ZTE (USA)’s defenses to that Complaint, there exists an actual and justiciable controversy between the parties regarding the alleged infringement of U.S. Patent Nos. 8,149,124 (“the ‘124 patent”) and 8,466,795 (“the ‘795 patent”), collectively referred to as the “Patents-in-Suit.” 4.
 
This Court has original jurisdiction over the subject matter of these claims  pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331 and 1338(a). 5.
 
This Court has personal jurisdiction over Pragmatus, on information and belief, at least because Pragmatus entities have established both minimum contacts and continuous and systematic contacts with the state of California, including directing business activities at this forum and to residents of this forum, seeking to monetize the Patents-in-Suit from residents of this forum, relying upon the activities within California of at least one licensee to support the enforcement of the Patents-in-Suit, and filing multiple lawsuits in California courts, and the exercise of jurisdiction over Pragmatus would not offend traditional notions of fair play and substantial justice. 6.
 
Venue over these claims is proper in this Court under 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b) and (c).
BACKGROUND

On its face the ‘124 patent entitled “Personal Security and Tracking System” indicates it was issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on April 3, 2012. A copy of the ‘124 patent is attached as Exhibit A. 8.

COMPLAINT 602246790v1
- 3 -
Case No.
indicates it was issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on June 8, 2013. A copy of the ‘795 patent is attached as Exhibit B. 9.
 
Pragmatus claims to be the owner by assignment of all right, title and interest in the Patents-in-Suit. 10.
 
On October 10, 2013, Pragmatus filed in the District Court for the District of Delaware a Complaint for Patent Infringement against ZTE Corporation, ZTE (USA) Inc., and ZTE Solutions Inc. for the alleged infringement of the Patents-in-Suit. 11.
 
On January 24, 2014, the United States International Trade Commission instituted the 337-TA-905 Investigation based on a Complaint filed by Pragmatus on the Patents-in-Suit against ZTE Corporation and ZTE (USA) Inc. on December 18, 2013. 12.
 
ZTE (USA) is not liable for infringing any valid, enforceable claim of the Patents-in-Suit because the accused ZTE products and processes have not infringed and do not infringe any such valid claim. Accordingly, there is an actual, substantial and continuing  justiciable controversy between ZTE (USA) and Pragmatus regarding the alleged infringement of the Patents-in-Suit by ZTE (USA) or by use of ZTE (USA)’s products and processes.
FIRST CLAIM FOR RELIEF (Declaratory Judgment of Non-Infringement of U.S. Patent No. 8,149,124)
13.
 
ZTE (USA) realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1-12, inclusive as though fully set forth in this paragraph. 14.
 
Pragmatus has asserted claims against ZTE (USA) for alleged infringement of the ’124 patent. 15.
 
ZTE (USA) denies Pragmatus’ allegations of infringement. ZTE (USA) does not make, use, offer for sale, sell, import, or export, and has never made used, offered to sell, sold, imported, or exported a method or device that infringes either directly, contributorily, or  by inducement, any valid and enforceable claim of the ’124 patent, either literally or under the doctrine of equivalents. 16.
 
There is an actual controversy, within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. §§ 2201 and
