Civil Case No. __________ JURY TRIAL DEMANDED COMPLAINT Plaintiff Mobile Transformation LLC ("Plaintiff"), for its Complaint against Defendant Pocket Gems, Inc.

Upon information and belief, Defendant is a Delaware corporation having a principal place of business at 220 Montgomery Street, Suite 750, San Francisco, CA 94104. Upon information and belief, Defendant may be served with process through its registered agent, Incorporating Services, Ltd., at 3500 South Dupont Highway, Dover, Delaware 19901. NATURE OF THE ACTION 3. This is a civil action for the infringement of United States Patent No. 6,351,736 (the "'736 Patent") under the Patent Laws of the United States, 35 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. JURISDICTION AND VENUE 4. This Court has jurisdiction over the subject matter of this action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331 and 1338(a) because this action arises under the Patent Laws of the United States, 35 U.S.C. § 271 et seq. 5. This Court has personal jurisdiction over Defendant because it is incorporated in Delaware and has purposely availed itself of the privileges and benefits of the laws of the State of Delaware. 6. Upon information and belief, more specifically, Defendant, directly and/or through authorized intermediaries, ships, distributes, offers for sale, sells, and/or advertises (including the provision of an interactive web page) its products and services in the United States and the State of Delaware. Upon information and belief, Defendant has committed patent infringement in the State of Delaware. Defendant solicits customers in the State of Delaware. Defendant has many paying customers who are residents of the State of Delaware and who each use Defendant's products and services in the State of Delaware. 7. Venue is proper in this judicial district as to Defendant pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1391 and 1400(b). THE PATENT-IN SUIT 8. Paragraphs 1-7 are incorporated by reference as if fully set forth herein. 9. On February 26, 2002, the '736 Patent entitled "System and Method for Displaying Advertisements with Played Data" was duly and lawfully issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("PTO"). The '736 Patent is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 10. Plaintiff is the exclusive licensee of the '736 Patent and possesses all rights of recovery under the '736 Patent, including the right to sue and recover all damages for infringement thereof, including past infringement. COUNT I – PATENT INFRINGEMENT 11. Paragraphs 1-10 are incorporated by reference as if fully restated herein. 12. Upon information and belief and in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271(a), Defendant has infringed and continues to infringe at least Claim 64 of the '736 Patent by making, using, providing, offering to sell, and selling (directly or through intermediaries), in this district and elsewhere in the United States, systems and methods for displaying advertisements with played data via Defendant's mobile software applications. More specifically, and by way of nonlimiting example, Defendant's “Tap Dragon Park” mobile application (the "Mobile Application") presents a first data type of a video game data prior to the presentation of advertising data of a second type that includes an interactive image advertisement, for example. 13. For purposes of Claim 64, the Mobile Application downloads the data of a first data type, such as the video game data. Next, the Mobile Application downloads the advertising data of the second data type, which includes the interactive image advertisement data. The Mobile Application generates first and second commands for presenting the first and second data types. Next, the first and second data types are presented by the Mobile Application to the end user. More specifically, the Mobile Application presents the first data type of the video game data. Subsequently, the Mobile Application presents the second data type of the interactive image advertisement data when the end user finishes playing the video game. That is, the second data type is presented automatically based the presentation of the data of the first data type. 14. To the extent such notice may be required, Defendant received actual notice of its infringement of the '736 Patent at least as early as the filing of the original complaint in this action, pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 287(a). 15. Defendant's aforesaid activities have been, intentional, without authority and/or license from Plaintiff. 16. Plaintiff is entitled to recover from the Defendant the damages sustained by Plaintiff as a result of the Defendant's wrongful acts in an amount subject to proof at trial, which, by law, cannot be less than a reasonable royalty, together with interest and costs as fixed by this Court under 35 U.S.C. § 284. 17. Defendant's infringement of Plaintiff's exclusive rights under the '736 Patent will continue to damage Plaintiff, causing irreparable harm for which there is no adequate remedy at law, unless enjoined by this Court. PRAYER FOR RELIEF WHEREFORE, Plaintiff Mobile Transformation LLC respectfully requests that this Court enter judgment against Defendant Pocket Gems, Inc. as follows: A. An adjudication that Defendant has infringed the '736 Patent; B. An award of damages to be paid by Defendant adequate to compensate Plaintiff for its past infringement and any continuing or future infringement up until the date such judgment is entered, including interest, costs, and disbursements as justified under 35 U.S.C. § 284 and, if necessary to adequately compensate Plaintiff for Defendant's infringement, an accounting of all infringing sales including, but not limited to, those sales not presented at trial; C. A declaration that this case is exceptional under 35 U.S.C. § 285; D. An award to Plaintiff of its attorney fees, costs, and expenses incurred in prosecuting this action; and E. An award to Plaintiff of such further relief at law or in equity as the Court deems just and proper. DEMAND FOR JURY TRIAL Plaintiff hereby demands trial by jury on all claims and issues so triable.
