Undeterred by pending motions to dismiss on Alice grounds in two related cases, Two-Way Media Ltd has added a case against DISH and Echostar (Sling Media) (1:16-cv-00388) to the media streaming campaign that it began over a decade ago. The new complaint asserts five patents (5,778,187; 5,983,005; 6,434,622; 7,266,686; 9,124,607) from a family of nine generally related to managing and delivering real-time streaming media to a user device. The case joins two active Delaware cases—one each asserting the ‘187, ‘005, ‘622, and ‘686 patents, as well as the 8,539,237 patent, against Comcast (NBC) (1:14-cv-01006) and Verizon (1:14-cv-01212). The earliest patent in the family (the ‘187 patent) issued in July 1998, while the ‘607 patent issued in September 2015, after the complaints against Comcast and Verizon had already been twice amended. Two-Way Media accuses the defendants of infringement through provision of streaming content services.
