MMG IP Management LLC v. Linkedin Corporation 2:16-cv-00938-JRG

MMG IP Management LLC et al v Microsoft Corporation 2:16-cv-00939-JRG

MMG IP Management LLC v. Data.Com Connect, Inc 2:16-cv-00940-JRG

The plaintiff MMG is based in Plano.

It is pursuing legal action as a result of what it asserts was infringement of United States Patent Number 8,321,459.

Recent court documents show that the ‘459 patent, entitled “Method and System for Facilitating Access to Always Current Contact Information,” was issued on Nov. 27, 2012.

They purportedly list MMG owner Peter Pekarek-Kostka as the inventor.

“The ‘459 patent covers the methods and systems invented by MMG’s Peter Pekarek-Kostka, and protects MMG’s exclusive right to sell its methods and systems without infringement by competitors or their products,” the original petition says.

“With MMG’s covered methods and systems, as long as the owner of the contact information updates his or her records in a storage location, all third party contact information collections are also kept up to date and users benefit from the most accurate and current contact information available.”

MMG seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

Attorney Stephen M. Lobbin of the law firm One LLP in Newport Beach, Calif. serves as the plaintiff’s legal counsel.
