Inventor-controlled MindbaseHQ, LLC has filed its first litigation, suing Alphabet (1:20-cv-24742). The two patents asserted in the Southern District of Florida complaint generally relate to a database having both “tangible data elements” (“representing things which have physical weight and can cause an effect”) and “intangible data elements” (comprised of words and phrases describing the “tangible data elements”). Alphabet—identified alone, without any of its subsidiaries—is accused of infringement through the provision of the Google Search and Google Ads platforms, with features related to use of structured data to understand content at issue.
