WAG Acquisition, L.L.C. has filed two more suits in its long-running litigation campaign, accusing Alphabet (Google, YouTube) (6:21-cv-00816) and Amazon (6:21-cv-00815) of infringing three media streaming patents. The plaintiff targets “pre-recorded and live programming, delivered to desktop, tablet, smartphone, smart TV, streaming stick, and other streaming device and media player platforms”, calling out, respectively, YouTube and “CloudFront CDN (Content Distribution Network) service, and their AWS Elemental MediaConvert, AWS Elemental MediaStore, and AWS Media Package software and services, which serve as a processing front-end thereto”. This family of patents, now numbering over a dozen, has been in litigation (at least some of it funded by the litigation finance firm Woodsford Litigation Funding Limited) since February 2007.
