Sound View Asserts Patents It Acquired from Alcatel-Lucent for the First Time, Hitting Facebook
- March 2, 2016
A couple of years after its formation and acquisition of patents from Alcatel-Lucent, Sound View Innovations, LLC has filed its first litigation, asserting seven of those patents (5,991,845; 6,125,371; 6,732,181; 7,366,786; 7,412,486; 8,095,593; 8,135,860) against Facebook (1:16-cv-00116). Sound View was formed in Delaware in November 2013. Just over a month later, an agreement was executed that assigned over 250 patent assets to the NPE, and in June 2014, another nearly 300 patent assets were assigned from Alcatel-Lucent to Sound View.
