Just as Dominion Harbor Enterprises, LLC has announced the acquisition of a large portfolio of former American Express patents by an affiliate created in January, another affiliate, formed in Texas in April of last year, has begun filing litigation. In a new Eastern District of Texas complaint, Portal Communications, LLC has accused Apple (2:18-cv-00061) of infringing three patents generally related to returning search results responsive to both spoken prompts and location information. The Dominion plaintiff targets a long list of Apple computing devices “running iOS 3.1 or later and/or MacOS Sierra 10.12 or later”, including smartphones, smart watches, laptop computers, tablet computers, and desktop computers, as well as Apple TV, the HomePod, and certain iPod models.
