After a Quiet Year, VStream’s Video Processing Campaign Is Back
- November 12, 2015
VStream Technologies LLC has filed its first new suits in over a year, this time against BlackBerry and Motorola Mobility (6:15-cv-00976), C&A Marketing Inc., Contour, Drift Innovation, and PLR IP Holdings (6:15-cv-00974), and Ricoh (6:15-cv-00977). The NPE initiated its sole litigation campaign in April 2014 with two separate suits against two groups of defendants: LG, Nokia, Pantech, Samsung, Sony, and ZTE; and iOn America, GoPro, Woodman Labs, and World Wide Licenses. As in its previous cases, this week’s filings assert five patents that generally relate to video compression and decompression technology (6,690,731; 6,850,647; 7,489,824; 7,627,183; 8,179,971). VStream’s infringement allegations focus on BlackBerry’s and Motorola’s smartphones and the other defendants’ video cameras.
