Eureka Database Solutions, LLC, an entity associated with Texas monetization and advisory firm Dominion Harbor Enterprises, LLC, has kept alive its litigation campaign over patents from a portfolio picked up in September 2017 from Excalibur IP, LLC.

(the company formerly known as Yahoo, Inc. prior to the sale of Yahoo!’s operating businesses to Verizon in 2017); its portfolio has seen several divestitures since late 2017, as well as a recent, significant licensing deal with RPX.
