Cloud-Based Multimedia Platform at Issue in Third LF Capital Partners Campaign

July 5, 2019

Three affiliates of LF Capital Partners, LLC have launched litigation campaigns in the space of a month, each over patents received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) in December 2018. Computing Resource Technology LLC (CRT), a recently formed LF Capital affiliate, is the latest to do so; on June 28, the NPE sued Forbidden Technologies (d/b/a Blackbird) (1:19-cv-01237) over a single patent generally related to exchanging and manipulating multimedia files in a distributed computing environment. Blackbird is accused of infringement through the provision of its video platform, with CRT also calling out the inclusion of online video-editing software, FORscene.
