IV Adds FedEx to Data Management Campaign, Following Alice Setbacks

  • August 31, 2016

Intellectual Ventures (IV) has added FedEx and subsidiary GENCO to its data management campaign (2:16-cv-00980), less than a week after District Judge Rodney Gilstrap invalidated two of the patents asserted in an earlier case under Alice. The NPE’s latest complaint accuses the two companies of infringing five data management patents (6,633,900; 6,909,356; 7,199,715; 8,494,581; 9,047,586) through various aspects of the software and hardware used in its shipping business for asset and personnel tracking.
