MicroPairing Technologies LLC has acquired a portfolio of patents previously asserted by Eagle Harbor Holdings, L.L.C. and MediusTech LLC against Ford. The new owner has charged GM (6:20-cv-01001) and Toyota (6:20-cv-01002) with infringement of identical sets of seven patents, each through the provision of infotainment systems in certain of their vehicles.
