Global Interactive Media, Inc. has filed suit against Axwave (1:16-cv-0666), Liberty Interactive (Sirius XM) (1:16-cv-06867), and WideOpenWest (1:16-cv-06868), bringing the total number of defendants in its sole litigation campaign close to 20. The new complaints assert two patents (6,314,577; 8,032,907) against all three defendants, with the complaints against Sirius XM and WideOpenWest also asserting a third patent (7,574,721). The patents generally relate to requesting and receiving metadata about broadcast programs. Throughout the campaign, begun in December 2014, audio and/or video programming providers have been accused of infringement through online provision of broadcast listings.
