.In this patent infringement action, R+L Carriers, Inc.(“R+L”) appeals the district court’s dismissal with preju-dice of its amended complaints and counterclaims againstDriverTech LLC (“DriverTech”), Affiliated ComputerServices, Inc. (“ACS”), PeopleNet Communications Corp.(“PeopleNet”), Intermec Technologies Corp. (“Intermec”),Microdea, Inc. (“Microdea”), and Qualcomm, Inc. (“Qual-comm”).
1
R+L alleged that the Appellees each indirectlyinfringed United States Patent No. 6,401,078 (filed Apr. 3,2000) (“the ’078 patent”). The district court dismissed theamended complaints because it believed they failed tostate a claim to relief that was plausible on its face asrequired by
 Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly
, 550 U.S. 544(2007) and
 Ashcroft v. Iqbal
, 556 U.S. 662 (2009). Be-cause we agree that R+L failed to state a claim of con-tributory infringement against the Appellees, but findthat R+L adequately stated a claim of induced infringe-ment, we affirm-in-part, reverse-in-part and remand.
1
We refer to all of R+L’s pleadings as “complaints.”Since, whether asserted as complaints or counterclaims,R+L’s allegations are judged under the same standards.
