- March 14, 2016
Individual inventor Trevor Blumenau recently formed an aptly named company—Trevor Blumenau, LLC—in Texas in order to launch his second litigation campaign. Blumenau assigned a single patent (6,505,240) to the LLC on February 9, 2016, a week after it was formed, and one week after that, on February 16, the NPE sued Alphabet (Google, YouTube) for infringement through video sharing on YouTube (2:16-cv-00144). The ‘240 patent generally relates to content delivery.
