Monument Peak Ventures, LLC (MPV)—an NPE associated with monetization firm Dominion Harbor Enterprises, LLC—has continued to assert patents from a large portfolio of former EastmanKodak assets received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV), filing a new suit targeting various models of security cameras and security systemsof Robert Bosch (Bosch Security Systems) (1:20-cv-00611). The case follows a Xerox complaint filed roughly ten days ago seeking declaratory judgments of noninfringement as to eight MPV patents, a complaint in which Xerox asserts that MPV is “no innovator”, characterizing it as an NPE with an “opportunistic” monetization strategy (6:20-cv-06263). The day before Xerox filed its complaint, Corrino Holdings LLC—an NPE associated with monetization firm IPValuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal)—kept its sole litigation campaign alive, filing suit against Expedia (6:20-cv-00309) over patents from a portfolio also received from IV—a portfolio including assets that Palo Alto Research Corporation (PARC), a Xerox subsidiary, assigned to IV in May 2015.

Monetization firm IPValuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal) has launched yet another litigation campaign over patents that one of its affiliates recently acquired from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV). On June 6-7 of this year, a total of 16 US patent assets were assigned to Corrino Holdings LLC, which has now filed suit against Facebook (2:18-cv-08541), FourSquareLabs (2:18-cv-08544), Instagram (2:18-cv-08546), and Snap (2:18-cv-08548) over subsets of those assets. The asserted patents comprise three families, with infringement allegations focused on features of the defendants’ platforms that serve users information based on location, provide users metrics on site usage, and process user search requests. Corrino’s receipt of four other patent families suggests that more litigation from this IPVal affiliate may be coming.
