Texas monetization firm Endpoint IP LLC has just kicked off two new litigation campaigns. On May 16, the firm’s affiliate Aido LLC sued Panasonic (1:19-cv-00916) over the infringement of two video processing patents that the plaintiff acquired in December from an affiliate of Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV)—two months after Aido’s sister NPE, Aido Mobility LLC, sued Bank of America over another set of former IV patents. Aido’s new litigation was filed the same day as another Endpoint affiliate, Tactus Technologies LLC, launched a campaign of its own, targeting the Pattern Lock feature offered by Android mobile devices from LG Electronics (3:19-cv-01182) and ZTE (3:19-cv-01184).
A couple of weeks ago, RPX reported the assignment of a tranche of patents from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) to Aido LLC, an entity managed by Texas monetization firm Endpoint IP LLC. This past week a sister affiliate of Aido, Aido Mobility LLC, indeed filed suit, accusing Bank of America (1:19-cv-00465) of infringing four patents from a family generally related to delivering particularized (e.g., location-based) web content, through the provision of its mobile banking app. At issue is the app’s BankAmeriDeals feature, which sends push notifications that identify deals available for a place where the user just shopped, among other types of deal notifications offered. The patents-in-suit, although held by IV until recently, were not among those noted a couple of weeks ago and did not land directly in Aido Mobility’s hands.
