As Predicted, with a Twist, Endpoint IP Launches Its First Litigation Campaign of 2019
A couple of weeks ago, RPX reported the assignment of a tranche of patents from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) to Aido LLC, an entity managed by Texas monetization firm Endpoint IP LLC. This past week a sister affiliate of Aido, Aido Mobility LLC, indeed filed suit, accusing Bank of America (1:19-cv-00465) of infringing four patents from a family generally related to delivering particularized (e.g., location-based) web content, through the provision of its mobile banking app. At issue is the app’s BankAmeriDeals feature, which sends push notifications that identify deals available for a place where the user just shopped, among other types of deal notifications offered. The patents-in-suit, although held by IV until recently, were not among those noted a couple of weeks ago and did not land directly in Aido Mobility’s hands.
