Two of Dominion’s Peak Ventures Launch Litigation from Their Large, Recently Acquired Portfolios
Two new campaigns have arisen out of the recent large-portfolio acquisitions of Dominion Harbor Enterprises LLC. In an Eastern District of Texas complaint, Monument Peak Ventures, LLC (MPV) has tagged HMD Global (2:18-cv-00521) with three of its former Kodak patents over the provision of smartphones with dual rear cameras, as used to capture depth information and provide features like dynamic depth of field, as well as smartphones that disable certain camera features (e.g., the flash) when power is low. Meanwhile, Sovereign Peak Ventures, LLC (SPV) has filed its first litigation over patents originating with Panasonic, hitting Feit Electric (2:18-cv-10069). The accused products include LED light bulbs capable of adjusting their output to produce different colors and/or different temperatures of white light. MPV’s and SPV’s campaigns join prior litigation over former NEC patents by Dominion affiliate Vista Peak Ventures, LLC (VPV); Liberty Peak Ventures, LLC (LPV), the Dominion affiliate taking ownership of a former American Express portfolio, has yet to launch litigation.
