Stocks in this article: SPEX

NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- North South Holdings Inc. ("North South") -- an intellectual property development company, today is announcing that one of its wholly owned subsidiaries, Guidance IP LLC, filed a complaint against T-Mobile USA, Inc. for patent infringement.

The complaint is filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, the residential jurisdiction for the corporate headquarters of Harris Corporation, the original patent owner.  This lawsuit claims infringement by T-Mobile of United States Patent No. 5,719,584 entitled "System and Method for Determining the Geolocation of a Transmitter" ("'584 Patent").  The technology relates to the geolocation of cells phones on the T-Mobile cell phone network.  The original owner of patent '584 was the Harris Corporation.  North South purchased this patent along with over 200 others from Harris in 2012.    According to public filings, T-Mobile provides service to approximately 34.0 million customers through its network.

Anthony Hayes, North South CEO, stated, "This is the first complaint filed on the patents North South acquired from Harris Corporation, but we anticipate more.  This is a valuable portfolio and we will continue to demonstrate its worth as we move towards our merger with Spherix Incorporated. (NASDAQ: SPEX).  Use of North South's intellectual property without a license is unjust and we are committed to protecting the rights afforded North South under the United States Constitution."
