IPVal Kicks Off Image Scanning Campaign Asserting Patents Received from Intellectual Ventures

October 11, 2017

The month of October has already seen multiple campaigns launched by IP Valuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal) involving patents received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV). During the first week of the month, IPVal’s Diversified Observation LLC sued HP (1:17-cv-01410), Konica Minolta (2:17-cv-00688), Panasonic (1:17-cv-01409) and Oki Data Electric (Oki Data Americas) (1:17-cv-01408) over a group of patents generally related to image scanning; at issue are image processing systems (HP), multi-function printers (Oki Data), and image information reading apparatuses (Konica Minolta and Panasonic). The NPE’s filings come on the heels of a lawsuit filed on October 3 by IPVal’s Hyper Search LLC, against Facebook, also asserting patents acquired from IV.
