Recent Media Streaming Campaign Expands Outside of Delaware

November 6, 2019

The streaming campaign of Helios Streaming, LLC (as exclusive licensee) and Ideahub, Inc. (as patent owner) has expanded for the second month in a row. October saw a third Delaware suit, with CBS (Showtime) joining Crackle, Sony, and Walmart (VUDU), and others, as defendants there, while November has seen the plaintiffs file in the Central District of California, this time against Lions Gate Entertainment (Starz Entertainment) (8:19-cv-02140). Targeted is Starz’s media streaming service, with multiple patents originally developed in whole or in part by the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), patents assigned to the plaintiffs through a web of agreements seeming to preserve interests in the outcome of the litigation by certain nonparties—the plaintiffs’ recent notice of interested parties in California, identifying no such nonparties, notwithstanding.
