Location Services Campaign Expands to Target Financial Institutions
- March 30, 2015
Location Services IP, LLC continues its campaign with suits against CVS, HEB Grocery, JP Morgan Chase, Microsoft, and Wells Fargo. The same four patents asserted in the entity’s original litigation are asserted in these suits (5,839,088, 6,202,023, 6,356,834, 8,935,220), as well as one additional patent (6,047,236). The patents-in-suit relate to location-based services and are part of a larger portfolio that Location Services acquired from WGRS Licensing in 2014. The patents originated with Go2 Systems, a failed operating company created by Lee Hancock, one of the named inventors of the patents. Defendants’ applications that collect user location information are the accused products in the suit.
