Monument Peak Ventures, LLC v. Xerox Corporation

Case Summary

On September 1, 2021, Monument Peak Ventures, LLC (“MPV”), represented by Cabrach John Connor of Connor Lee PLLC, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Xerox Corporation (“Xerox” or “Defendant”), seeking declaratory relief and accounting of damages together with actual, consequential, special, punitive, increased, and/or statutory damages for the alleged infringement of United States Patents owned by Plaintiff. This case was filed in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Texas with Judge Rodney Gilstrap presiding

 

MPV asserts that Xerox allegedly infringes, directly and indirectly, U.S. Patent Nos. 6,810,149, 6,873,336, 7,006,890, 7,092,573, 7,092,966, and 7,684,090 (the “MPV Asserted Patents”) owned by Plaintiff. 

 

In its complaint, Plaintiff alleged that, “Xerox has directly infringed at least claims 1, 2, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11, 15, 17, and 18 of the ’149 Patent by using (including its own testing), making, selling, offering for sale, licensing, and/or import in the United States without authority Xerox DocuShare, DocuShare Flex software and platform and DocuShare mobile application software.”

 

Plaintiff also alleged that, “Xerox has, since at least as early as the filing of this complaint, known or been willfully blind to the fact that the third-party infringers’ use of the DocuShare software and services directly infringe the ’149 Patent.”

 

Plaintiff further alleged that, “Xerox’s knowledge of the ’149 Patent, which covers operating the accused DocuShare software and services in their intended manner such that all limitations of the asserted claims of the ’149 Patent are met, extends to its knowledge that the third-party infringers’ use of DocuShare software and services directly infringes the ’149 Patent, or, at the very least, rendered Xerox willfully blind to such infringement.”

 

Plaintiff even further alleged that, “Xerox induces the third-party infringers to infringe the asserted claims of the ’149 Patent by directing or encouraging them to operate the Xerox DocuShare software and services which, alone or in combination with the third-party infringers’ devices, satisfy all limitations of the asserted claims of the ’149 Patent. For example, Xerox advertises and promotes the cataloging features of the DocuShare software and services and encourage the third-party infringers to operate them in an infringing manner. Xerox further provides technical assistance directing and instructing third parties how to operate the DocuShare software and services by, for example, publishing instructional materials, user guides, and support forums.”

 

Plaintiff has made similar allegations with respect to other Asserted Patents. 

 

Plaintiff has laid down six claims for relief which deal with the alleged infringement of each of the Asserted patents. 

 

In its prayer for relief, Plaintiff requested the Court to enter an order declaring that Xerox has infringed each of the Asserted Patents; grant MPV judgment against Xerox for all actual, consequential, special, punitive, increased, and/or statutory damages, including, if necessary, an accounting of all damages; pre and post-judgment interest as allowed by law; and reasonable attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses; and that Xerox be found to have willfully infringed the Asserted Patents.
