USAA sues Wells Fargo over alleged RDC patent infringement
San Antonio-based USAA has filed a lawsuit against San Francisco-based Wells Fargo in the Texas Eastern U.S. District Court, citing infringement of its mobile remote deposit capture patents.
The move follows notifications sent last year to hundreds of banks informing them of patent violations and requesting licensing fees for the company's RDC patents, the San Antonio Business Journal report.
According to papers filed in the district court:
"Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit includes features that were invented, developed, and released to customers years earlier by USAA, such as check alignment guides and feedback indicators to assist the customer in orienting the camera and taking high-quality, legible photographs."
USAA is requesting that the court award the company monetary damages and legal fees.
