Flash Drives at Issue in New Campaign

August 28, 2017

In early July, RPX noted the assignment of multiple patents from IQ Holdings, LLC, an affiliate of the Atlanta monetization firm IP Investments Group, LLC (d/b/a IPinvestments Group), to another affiliate, Universal Transdata, LLC. Universal Transdata has now asserted one of those patents, generally related to a mobile storage device with a retractable universal serial bus (USB) connection. The NPE accuses seven defendants of infringement through the provision of flash drives, in two venues: ADATA Technology (1:17-cv-03234), Silicon Power Computer & Communications (1:17-cv-03235), and Staples (1:17-cv-03285) in the Northern District of Georgia (where IPinvestments Group is based) and Dexxxon Digital Storage (1:17-cv-01238), Ingram Micro (1:17-cv-01237), Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings (Verbatim Americas) (1:17-cv-01240), and Monster Digital (1:17-cv-01239), and) in the District of Delaware.
