New NPE Files First Lawsuits over Patents Recently Received from Intellectual Discovery

October 26, 2018

After a receiving over two dozen patents from Intellectual Discovery Co., Ltd. in mid-September, Carrum Technologies, LLC has asserted two of them in its first litigation campaign. The NPE sued BMW (1:18-cv-01645), Fiat Chrysler (1:18-cv-01646), and Ford (1:18-cv-01647) over the provision of vehicles with adaptive cruise control features that adjust automated driving behavior when the vehicle drives along a curved road. The two patents-in-suit, generally related to automated vehicle operation, are among nine originally issuing to Delphi that are now held by Carrum; the others in its new portfolio originally issued to Alcatel-Lucent, Agere Systems, Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), or IBM.
