AMAZON.COM LITIGATION BEGINS NEXT WEEK: In a "battle royale" from some local heavyweights, Pinpoint Incorporated's patent infringement suit against Amazon.com is set for trial next week beginning December 6th in Chicago. The Honorable Judge Richard A. Posner of the 7th Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals will be sitting by designation as the district judge presiding over the jury trial. Pinpoint alleges Amazon.com's personalization technology and its product recommendations infringe Pinpoint's U.S. Patents Nos. 5,758,257 and 6,088,722. Pinpoint is represented by Phil Beck and Peter Bensinger, Jr. of Bartlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott LLP in Chicago. Mr. Beck represented President George W. Bush in the 2000 election contest litigation in Florida and also represented the U.S. Government in its antitrust case against Microsoft. Mr. Bensinger is nationally known for his use of legal technology and American Lawyer magazine has dubbed him "the most wired lawyer in America."
