On the same day that Adiona IP, LLC filed suit against Samsung (2:18-cv-09135) in the District of New Jersey, the plaintiff, an affiliate of monetization firm IP Valuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal), also tagged Bang & Olufsen (1:18-cv-00716), LG Electronics (LGE) (1:18-cv-00718), Libratone (1:18-cv-00719), and Peag (1:18-cv-00717) over the same media distribution patent in the District of Delaware. Adiona IP accuses the defendants of infringement through the provision of speakers having Bluetooth connectivity to smartphones and/or tablet computers—e.g., Samsung’s Radiant360 R1 speaker system (in connection with smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S9), LGE’s FH6 (in combination with smartphones like the LG G6), etc.
One of the two patents asserted in a new suit against TiVo by Adiona IP, LLC has also been asserted in a case filed against Samsung (2:18-cv-09135) roughly one week later. Adiona IP, an affiliate of monetization firm IP Valuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal) accuses Samsung of infringing the media distribution patent through the manufacture and sale of its Radiant360 R1 speaker system, which plays music through a Bluetooth connection with a Samsung smartphone, the complaint calling out the Samsung Galaxy S9. At issue with respect to the same patent in the TiVo case is TiVo’s Multi-Room Streaming service.
Adiona IP, LLC, an affiliate of monetization firm IP Valuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal), has filed its first lawsuit, accusing TiVo (1:18-cv-00670) of infringing two media distribution patents, one originally developed by Cypress Semiconductor and the other, by Philips. Adiona IP received both patents in a May 2017 transfer from TQ Beta LLC, an affiliate of Techquity Capital Management, LLC. At issue in the new case are TiVo’s Multi-Room Streaming service and the company’s Roamio OTA VOX digital video recorder (DVR).
