Capital One scores IP litigation victory over Intellectual Ventures

A U.S. district judge dismissed IV’s lawsuit and invalidated two patents

A U.S. district judge dismissed an IV lawsuit against Capital One on April 16, invalidating two patents that IV was attempting to assert against the financial institution. One of the patents related to electronic financial databases, while the other asserted claims over customized web interfaces.

In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga in Virginia said that the patents IV was attempting to assert were actually abstract ideas, and thus could not be patented.
