Lumen View Technology Files Suit against Five More Companies in E-Commerce Campaign
- June 12, 2012
Lumen View Technology (LVT) [NPE] filed suit against Central Connecticut Communications, Heartland Publications, Post-Bulletin Company, Realmatch, and The Small Newspaper Group, alleging that the defendants’ websites that facilitates an evaluation between prospective employers and job seekers infringes a patent related to web tools that facilitate an evaluation between one party and another. LVT has filed six prior suits since March 2012 against Avotus, CollegeBound, EducationConnection, EducationDynamics, Mom Corps Services, and Zimride. According to the complaint, LVT is the exclusive licensee of the patent-in-suit, which was developed by Eileen Shapiro and Steven Mintz at DecisionSorter before being assigned to Dalton Sentry in September 2010. In November 2010, two other patents from the Dalton Sentry portfolio were asserted by Blackstone River [NPE] against Eharmony, Humor Rainbow, Match.com, Matrima, Mom Corps Services, Plentyoffish, and True Beginnings. That case was dismissed with prejudice in October 2011. 6/8, District of Delaware, no judge yet assigned, 1:2012cv00724.
