InNova Files Patent Infringement Lawsuits Against Facebook, PayPal, Others

MARSHALL, Texas, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Longview, Texas-based InNova Patent Licensing LLC has filed patent infringement lawsuits against 24 tech companies accused of infringing an InNova patent used in revolutionary e-mail spam technology.

The Lanier Law Firm represents InNova in its claims against Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT), PayPal Inc., eBay Inc. (NASDAQ:EBAY), LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE:LNKD), Comcast Corp. (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and other technology and communications companies.

The lawsuits, including InNova Patent Licensing, LLC v. Facebook Inc., No. 2:12-cv-00363, were filed June 21, 2012, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas in Marshall.

The federal patent claim focuses on an InNova patent, U.S. Patent No. 6,018,761, that covers technology used to differentiate between spam e-mail messages and those that users actually want to receive. The lawsuit alleges that the defendant companies have used InNova's patented e-mail technology for years without permission.

"E-mail inboxes are inundated with hundreds of spam messages every day, and InNova's technology helps to sort out what messages really should be delivered to users," says Christopher Banys, lead counsel for InNova and head of The Lanier Law Firm's national intellectual property practice. "Our goal is to help protect InNova's valuable intellectual property, and to stop the defendants from illegally profiting from our client's innovations."

With offices in Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Palo Alto, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, intellectual property, business litigation, product liability, maritime law, bad faith insurance claims, and sports and entertainment law.
