December 30, 2017

LBS Innovations, LLC, an affiliate of monetization firm Empire IP LLC, has filed a new case in the largest of Empire IP’s over 40 litigation campaigns. The new complaint accuses Best Buy, Car Toys, and Fry’s Electronics (2:17-cv-00792) of infringing a single patent through the sale of GPS navigation devices made by either JVC Kenwood or Pioneer Electronics, neither of which is itself named as a defendant. The patent generally relates to providing location-based information, including “entertainment, commercial offers, and advertising” to mobile devices. LBS Innovations began this campaign in March 2011, with the number of defendants now topping 100.
