Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV), via plaintiff Intellectual Ventures II LLC (IV II), has filed another case against HP Enterprise (HPE) (6:21-cv-01298), again in the Western District of Texas—even though HPE has repeatedly moved (with some apparent success) for convenience transfers elsewhere. A single patent generally related to “hosting computing clusters” is asserted in the new complaint, with IV targeting certain HPE cloud computing services, together with related hardware and software. The new case is the third that IV filed against HPE in 2021.

Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV), through subsidiary Intellectual Ventures II LLC (IV II), has sued Dell (VMware) (6:20-cv-00220) over the provision of various products related to virtualization and data center network traffic monitoring and optimization. Five patents of disparate origins are asserted in the new Western District of Texas complaint, IV having moved three of them into the plaintiff’s possession back in 2018, assigning the other two to IV II earlier in March—along with five others of similar subject matter but not yet asserted in litigation. Various VMware products are accused of infringing the five patents.
