Number of Defendants in Marshall Feature QR Codes Campaign Tops Forty
- February 23, 2016
With the addition of cases against Allstate (2:16-cv-00149) and ConocoPhillips (2:16-cv-00148), the number of defendants in the sole litigation campaign of Marshall Feature Recognition, LLC (MFR) has topped 40. The same two patents (6,886,750; 8,910,876) typically asserted in the other suits in this campaign are again asserted here. They generally relate to printed materials with machine readable features that can be used to access related digital information, and MFR accuses the defendants of infringement through the distribution of printed materials with QR (quick recognizable) codes on them.
