Digital Shovel Holdings Inc., based in Toronto, Canada, has filed a lawsuit against RK Mission Critical LLC, RK Mechanical LLC, and RK Industries LLC for patent infringement in the US District Court for the District of Colorado.

The complaint alleges that RK Mission Critical unlawfully used Digital Shovel’s patented V-Shape technology, which significantly enhances miner density in crypto mining containers.

Despite Digital Shovel’s refusal to license the technology to Compute North in 2019, RK Mission Critical allegedly began producing similar containers, prompting legal action.

Digital Shovel, protected by three patents, seeks compensation and an injunction against further sales of infringing products, emphasising the importance of protecting intellectual property in the industry.
