DigiMedia Tech, LLC, an NPE associated with Georgia monetization firm IPInvestments Group LLC (d/b/a IPinvestments Group), has filed suit against ViacomCBS (Showtime Networks) (1:21-cv-01831) in the Southern District of New York. The NPE asserts five patents—each received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV)—three of which are new to litigation; the accused products include Blu-Ray discs and the Showtime Anywhere streaming service, with the use of the AVC video codec in both products and certain preview and content-linking features in the Showtime Anywhere service at issue.
Sued in the District of Delaware last week, Lenovo (Motorola Mobility) (1:21-cv-00227) has become the latest defendant added to DigiMedia Tech, LLC’s campaign litigating a trove of patents acquired from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) in November 2019. DigiMedia has been targeting digital cameras and video compression, the NPE again asserting three patents already in suit against Lenovo for its provision of the Moto G7 Power smartphone and VOIP 360 Camera Speaker. A fourth patent, however, is asserted in this latest complaint that departs from that focus: generally related to “automatic information exchange”, that patent is aimed at the Lenovo Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform.
DigiMedia Tech, LLC, an NPE associated with Georgia monetization firm IPInvestments Group LLC (d/b/a IPinvestments Group), has added a case against Panasonic (1:20-cv-04995) to the digital camera campaign that it began in May of this year with separate suits against Fujifilm and Olympus. Cases over three of the patents asserted patents—one generally related to digital camera focusing mechanisms and the other two generally related to tracking the head of a person in a video—against JK Imaging, Nikon, and Sakar (filed in June) and against Elite Brands (filed in September) followed. Only two of those prior six suits remain active. In its new complaint, DigiMedia asserts five additional patents for the first time.
