Category: Patent Market, Patent Watch
The steady outflow of patents from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) continued through August, with an assignment to a newly formed Texas entity with ties to NPE Vindolor LLC, and transfers to a Native American tribe (previously reported by RPX here). As the month of August closed, the USPTO also made public a January 2018 assignment from IV to an affiliate of IP Valuation Partners, LLC (d/b/a IPVal) involving patents originating with Conexant, ST Microelectronics, Xerox, and elsewhere. IPVal has multiple ongoing litigation campaigns asserting patents received from IV.
