COOLTvNetwork.com, Inc. has added two more cases to the litigation campaign begun in Delaware in February, suing Snap (1:19-cv-00534) and Trapelo (1:19-cv-00535) in that same district. The plaintiff continues to assert a single patent generally related to a “multifunctional hot spot”, accusing Snap of infringement through the provision of a variety of features within Snapchat, including user interface elements related to photo capture, messaging, and user discovery as well as advertising. Hapyak Interactive Video, Trapelo’s interactive video platform, is targeted for inclusion of embedded quizzes, links, and lessons; user feedback mechanisms; and interactive advertising, including in-video purchases.

In each complaint, the plaintiff asserts a single patent generally related to a “multifunctional hot spot”, accusing the defendants of infringement through the provision of interactive features within online video delivery or streaming services. For example, COOLTvNETWORK.com targets Facebook over, among other things, click-through links in video ads, as well as features related to buying the advertised product or service.
