 The Lanier Law Firm Represents Inventor In E-mail Spam Patent Dispute


MARSHALL, Texas – 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 Christop
 her 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.”
