Browse3D, LLC, a Texas entity created in February, has filed suit over the member to issue most recently in a family familiar to litigation. The NPE has sued retailers Dick’s Sporting Goods (6:19-cv-00186) and Nordstrom (6:19-cv-00188) over their e-commerce websites’ presentation of customized information (e.g., items recommended for purchase) based on tracking links that a user previously clicked on. In prior litigation, a different plaintiff—Flash3D LLC, an affiliate of monetization firm IP Valuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal)—accused Facebook, Microsoft, and Samsung of infringing earlier-issuing members of the same family, the former through the presentation on www.facebook.com of multiple “panels” on a single browser page and the latter two through the provision of virtual reality headsets.
