Universal Transdata, LLC, an affiliate of IP Investments Group LLC (d/b/a IPinvestments Group), has added a suit against Lenovo (1:18-cv-04327) to its litigation campaign targeting wireless peripherals (i.e., keyboard, mouse, keyboard-mouse combination) connecting through USB wireless receivers. The NPE has asserted a single patent, received in April 2017 from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV), against eight defendants, with 2018 cases against Deerbrook Electronics, PC Gear Head, Razer, and Tecknet Online each ending last month.
In early July, RPXnoted the assignment of multiple patents from IQ Holdings, LLC, an affiliate of the Atlanta monetization firm IP Investments Group, LLC (d/b/a IPinvestments Group), to another affiliate, Universal Transdata, LLC. Universal Transdata has now asserted one of those patents, generally related to a mobile storage device with a retractable universal serial bus (USB) connection. The NPE accuses seven defendants of infringement through the provision of flash drives, in two venues: ADATA Technology (1:17-cv-03234), Silicon Power Computer & Communications (1:17-cv-03235), and Staples (1:17-cv-03285) in the Northern District of Georgia (where IPinvestments Group is based) and DexxxonDigital Storage (1:17-cv-01238), Ingram Micro (1:17-cv-01237), Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings (Verbatim Americas) (1:17-cv-01240), and Monster Digital (1:17-cv-01239), and) in the District of Delaware.
