Intellectual Ventures, a patent-holding firm based in Bellevue, Wash., has filed lawsuits against AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile USA. In the lawsuit, Intellectual Ventures alleges that the three wireless network operators are infringing on 12 patents. "The wireless communications networks of AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile use a variety of important technologies covered by Intellectual Ventures' patents. We previously attempted to discuss licensing options with each of these companies, but none were responsive, said Intellectual Ventures' litigation counsel Melissa Finocchio in a statement. It is seeking unspecified damages.
