In New Suit, Millennium Commerce Turns Focus from Retailers to POS Terminal Provider First Data

February 2, 2017

Unlike the other two cases in its campaign, accusing retailers TGI Friday’s and Whole Foods Market of infringement through their use of point-of-sale (POS) terminals, the new suit (2:17-cv-00083) brought by Monument Patent Holdings, LLC subsidiary Millennium Commerce, LLC directly targets one manufacturer of such terminals, Clover Network. The NPE’s new complaint accuses Clover, and its parent First Data, of infringing the sole patent-in-campaign (7,954,701), which generally relates to a point-of-sale terminal that processes “cash back” transactions, through the manufacture and sale of its various terminals, including Clover Mini, Clover Station, and Clover Mobile.
