First Litigation over Wireless Communications Portfolio, Acquired from IV, Targets NEC

October 19, 2019

Early last week, Terrestrial Comms LLC, an entity associated with Texas monetization firm IPValuation Partners, LLC (d/b/a IPVal), recorded the assignment of more than two dozen US patents, as well as related international assets, from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV). A day earlier, the NPE had asserted the first of those received patents—one generally related call screening through a three-way connection—in litigation, accusing NEC (6:19-cv-00597) of infringement through the provision of NEC DSX80/DSX160 telephone systems, with allegations focused on the “Live Call Screening” feature that allows users to listen in on the caller’s voicemail message real time.
