Sovereign Peak Ventures, LLC (SPV) has added a second defendant to the litigation campaign that it began in December, suing Lifi Labs (3:19-cv-00025) in the Northern District of California. The two LED lighting patents asserted in the new complaint, received as part of a large portfolio reportedly acquired from Panasonic, are also at issue, together with a third family, in the first complaint, filed against Feit Electric in the Central District of California. At issue in the campaign is the defendants’ provision of LED light bulbs capable of adjusting their output to produce different colors and/or different temperatures of white light. SPV is an affiliate of Texas monetization firm Dominion Harbor Enterprises LLC, which also acquired sizeable portfolios of patents from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) in 2018.
