“SpeedTrack has done a lot of homework in terms of identifying people it believes are infringing its patent and using its technology for free and profiting off of it,” says Marc Morris of the law firm of Hennigan, Bennett & Dorman LLP, which is representing SpeedTrack. Morris says it is possible SpeedTrack would sue other online retailers that use a similar guided navigation system.
