Texas monetization firm IP Edge LLC recently moved two of the 30 US patents that it acquired from Siemens in October 2018 to a new entity, Bunker IP LLC, which has now asserted those two patents in separate suits filed against Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile) (1:21-cv-00483), DISH Network (DISH Wireless) (1:21-cv-00482), and ZTE (1:21-cv-00484) in the Northern District of Illinois and against TCL (1:21-cv-00088) in the District of Delaware. Myriad IP Edge plaintiffs have litigated patents from that former Siemens portfolio, including Q3 Networking LLC, which filed a complaint before the International Trade Commission (ITC), pleading that it would support a domestic industry claim by “promptly seek[ing] detailed discovery of Siemens’ domestic industry activities and investments related to the Asserted Patents and claimed technology through subpoena or through cooperation”. Q3 Networking has apparently proceeded via subpoena.
Over the past couple of months, IP Edge LLC has steadily begun asserting patents received from Linex Technologies, Inc. in multiple new campaigns (see here), but the Texas monetization firm has continued to file other litigation as well, this past week asserting yet more patents from a portfolio received from Siemens. Last month, plaintiffs CyndaTek LLC and Pivital IP LLC, both apparently associated with the prolific Texas monetization firm, have begun litigating certain of those patents.
