Every day I receive litigation alerts from MaxVal. I think it’s interesting to see who’s filing patent claims in the United States.It seems that most patent litigations these days have to do with methods of using computers and Internet social networking sites.

For example Blockbuster is getting sued for digitally selling movies through its Internet virtual store and LinkedIn Corporation is getting sued for the way it’s managing its supplier branded and marketing related services.

Cathas Advanced Technologies LLC is suing Expedia, Apple and Amazon in three different lawsuits for methods and storage mediums regarding communications, Web applications and marketing related services.

Here is a chart that lists the law suits on May 30, 2012 for patent infringement:
