Litigation in the media casting/streaming campaign of Flexiworld Technologies, Inc. continues to heat up before District Judge Alan D. Albright. The first defendant, Amazon, has filed a second motion challenging Flexiworld’s standing to sue, based on a prior assignment agreement with Samsung, and Flexiworld has hit Roku (6:21-cv-00680) with a second complaint in which six more patents are asserted against the defendant, bringing the total number of patents-in-suit between the two to nine. In early June, Judge Albright handed down a claim construction order in the campaign, ascribing to each of four disputed claim terms its plain and ordinary meaning.
Flexiworld Technologies, Inc. has added a case against Canon (6:21-cv-00143) to the litigation campaign that it began last year with a June suit against Amazon and a September suit against Roku, all in the Western District of Texas. The plaintiff asserts patents from a 70-member family in overlapping sets against the defendants, the patents at issue in the new Canon complaint generally related to short range wireless communications or wireless printing. The suit has been assigned to District Judge Alan D. Albright, who held a claim construction hearing in the Amazon case in late January and who has before him a motion to transfer that case to the Western District of Washington and a motion to dismiss claims related to several of Flexiworld’s patents in light of a prior assignment agreement with Samsung.
