Kewazinga’s Restarted Campaign over “Telepresence” Patents, Already Underway Against Microsoft, Hits Google

February 13, 2020

Kewazinga Corp. has resumed litigation against Alphabet (Google) (1:20-cv-01106), asserting in a new complaint three patents generally related to a camera array that captures adjacent fields of view and “stitches” them together in a mosaic-like image so that the entire environment can be viewed in a seamless, panoramic view. The plaintiff targets the provision of Google Maps, the Google Street View feature of which allows users to simulate “movement along a path”. Kewazinga’s suit against Google joins a May 2018 case against Microsoft in the Southern District of New York, filed four months after a security interest in the asserted patents was granted to a “leading global alternative asset management firm”.
