In late December, Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) assigned a portfolio of over 50 US assets to a Texas entity with ties to several litigating NPEs, including American Patents LLC—which has three active campaigns asserting IV divestitures. The transacted portfolio includes patents originating with major operating companies and generally relates to semiconductors; it also looks likely to appear in litigation soon.
