Ingeniador filed nine separate suits against Adobe, AGFA Gevaert and its subsidiaries AGFA and AGFA Healthcare, BMC Software, CenturyLink and its subsidiary Savvis, GE Healthcare, McKesson, Nuance Communications, Quest Diagnostics and its subsidiary MedPlus, and Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation and its subsidiary Vital Images, alleging that the defendants’ content management tools and electronic publishing systems infringe a patent related to a web-based editing and publishing system. According to the complaints, AGFA Gevaert, CenturyLink, Quest Diagnostics, Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation and their subsidiaries are properly joined because they make, use, import into the U.S., offer for sale, and sell the same accused products. Ingeniador filed one prior suit in August 2011 against over 15 defendants including Blackboard, EMC, HP, Lexmark, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP, and has been subject to two actions for declaratory judgment brought by EMC and Informatica. The patent-in-suit originated with Schlumberger Technology and was assigned to Ingeniador in July 2011. RPX reviewed the patent-in-suit as an open market opportunity twice, the first time as (Schlumberger Security – Acq) in June 2010 and the second as (Schlumberger Mobile – OMA) in April 2012. 12/19, Eastern District of Texas, 2:2012cv00805; 2:2012cv00806; 2:2012cv00807; 2:2012cv00808; 2:2012cv00809; 2:2012cv00810; 2:2012cv00811; 2:2012cv00812; 12/20, Eastern District of Texas, assigned to Judge Rodney Gilstrap, 2:2012cv00813.
