Video Calls and VoIP Targeted as Straight Path Campaign Adds Defendants
- September 26, 2014
Straight Path IP Group’s (SPIG) litigation campaign continues with suits against Apple, Avaya, Cisco, and Verizon. The four patents-in-suit relate to point-to-point communication over a network and have been used in many of SPIG’s previous suits (6,009,469, 6,108,704, 6,131,121, 6,701,365). SPIG has filed 24 suits over the last year, targeting almost 20 defendant companies that provide VoIP and media streaming services. VoIP services are the accused products in the suits against Avaya, Cisco, and Verizon; the suit against Apple accuses video call software of infringing the asserted patents.
