KNOXVILLE, Tenn., April 20, 2012 -- Spireon, Inc., formerly ProconGPS, the global leader in M2M business intelligence solutions, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in a California Federal Court against CallPass Technologies.
This is the second lawsuit of its kind, filed by Spireon, Inc, regarding patent infringement; the first suit was filed against Star Sensor, Skypatrol and others. The complaint is related to U.S. patents 6,249,217 B1 & 6,025,774 and involves an innovative system that applies Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology, cellular networks, and information systems to monitor loan status for a default condition on a vehicle and to enable tracking to aid the confiscation and repossession process for dealers and finance companies.
