JVCKenwood (2:18-cv-02462) and Thinkware Systems (8:18-cv-00492) have been added to the second litigation campaign initiated by Leigh M. Rothschild affiliate Location Based Services, LLC (LBS). A single patent generally related to organizing image data by, among other things, location metadata has now been asserted in complaints against four defendants, including Cobra Electronics and Sony in February cases filed in Delaware. LBS has accused JVCKenwood of infringement through the provision of the Kenwood Driver Reviewer for PC and Mac; Thinkware Systems, of the DashCam Viewer for PC and Mac. This second LBS litigation campaign comes as the NPE appeals to the Federal Circuit an order invalidating under Alice several of the patents asserted in its first litigation campaign, begun in February 2017.
Location Based Services, LLC (LBS), an entity controlled by inventor and frequent plaintiff Leigh M. Rothschild, has opened up a second litigation campaign from a portfolio of patents received in a December 2016 transfer from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV). The two new complaints tag Cobra Electronics (1:18-cv-00308) and Sony (1:18-cv-00283) in the District of Delaware, asserting a single patent generally related to organizing image data by, among other things, location metadata. The accused product in the Cobra Electronics complaint is its Drive HD Player for PC and Mac, while Sony is accused of infringement through provision of PlayMemories software for Mac, Windows, and PS3. LBS’s second litigation campaign comes as the NPE appeals to the Federal Circuit an Alice-related order gutting—but not ending—its first.
