Monument Subsidiary Files Suit Against Samsung over Recently Acquired Location Services Patents

October 28, 2017

RPX reported in early October the assignment of 15 patents from TP Lab, Inc. to Local Intelligence, LLC, an affiliate of Monument Patent Holdings, LLC. The NPE has now filed its first suit, targeting Galaxy S6, S7, and S8 smartphones made and sold by Samsung (2:17-cv-00716). Three related patents that broadly concern updating a phone’s display with a location-specific “communication service” are asserted, with the complaint’s allegations focusing on the use of navigation services (e.g., Google Maps), including the presentation of an edge display listing “My Places” for the user.
