Last September, RPX noted the assignment of nearly two dozen US patent assets from an affiliate of Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) to BCS Software LLC (d/b/a Bluebonnet Consulting Services & Software) (BCS). That entity has now filed its first litigation, suing LG Electronics (LGE) (6:19-cv-00239) and Samsung (6:19-cv-00235) over one of the patents received. That patent generally relates to a system for using a server to monitor certain client applications and distributed components associated with those applications over a network. LGE is accused of infringement through the provision of its Smart ThinQ Hub and supporting software, part of its Smart ThinQ smart home control platform; Samsung, of SyncThru, a printer fleet management system.
