Leigh Rothschild’s Newest NPE Targets Media Streaming Companies
A new entity run by Leigh Rothschild, Rothschild Broadcast Distribution Systems, LLC (RBDS), filed its first round of litigation against Comcast, Crunchyroll, Discovery Communications, NGC Network, Univision,UStream, VBrick, Vimeo, VUDU, and Wistia. The entity is asserting one patent concerning cloud-based media storage and delivery (8,856,221). Like most patents asserted by Rothschild-related entities, Leigh Rothschild is the sole inventor of the patent-in-suit. Defendants’ media streaming services are accused of infringing the asserted patent. RPX reviewed the patent-in-suit as part of an open market opportunity in November 2014 (Ariel Innovations 2 – OMA).
