Backed by Deals with IV and United Wireless, QPRC Continues Burst of Litigation Activity

April 28, 2018

Publicly traded Quest Patent Research Corporation (QPRC) has added cases to two of its subsidiaries’ litigation campaigns, while also launching a third. At the beginning of this month, Photonic Imaging Solutions Inc. asserted four patents, generally related to CMOS image sensors, against ASUS, Lorex Technology, and NETGEAR; it has now sued a fourth defendant, Lenovo (1:18-cv-00636), targeting more laptops, tablets, desktop computers, and smartphones, calling out the Yoga Book YB1-X90L in the new complaint. Meanwhile, separate QPRC subsidiary Mariner IC Inc. has also sued Lenovo (2:18-cv-00168), as well as Huawei (2:18-cv-00167) and TiVo (2:18-cv-00166), over two patents broadly related to anchoring a semiconductor die to prevent cracking, after filing cases asserting those same patents against Acer, ASUS, Bose, Schneider Electronics, and Sharp in mid-March. Finally, QPRC’s CXT Systems, Inc. has kicked off a new litigation campaign with the potential to expand quickly and widely, asserting multiple patents against Academy (d/b/a Academy Sports + Outdoors) (2:18-cv-00171), Pier 1 Imports (2:18-cv-00172), and The Container Store (2:18-cv-00173), targeting their e-commerce websites.
