At LSI's Merchant Strategies for Mobile Payments Conference in Seattle on May 14, DWT's Erica Wilson presented on the topic of "What Merchants Need to Know About How the Key Players in the Mobile Payments Services Ecosystem Relate to Each Other." Her presentation focused on patent infringement disputes, including a discussion on how merchants might become entangled in patent infringement disputes (even if they themselves did not file the patent), such as through the following activities:

  • Transmission of data between merchant and customers
  • Compression/encryption
  • Shopping cart technology
  • Advertising
  • Including a link in a text message
  • Store locator
  • Consumer rewards
  • Portal features
