Inventor-owned NPE Sues Google and Facebook over Search
- December 18, 2014
Word to Info, Inc.’s suits against Google and Facebook assert a family of patents developed by the entity’s owner, Robert Budzinski. The seven patents-in-suit relate to encoding data for storage and management using natural language processing (5,715,468, 6,138,087, 6,609,091, 7,349,840, 7,873,509, 8,326,603, 8,688,436). Search functions from Google and Facebook that rely on natural language processing to return results are accused of infringing the family of patents asserted in litigation.
