A Bit of Confusion Seems to Cloud Complaints Filed by “Flick Intelligence”

FlickIntelligence, LLC appears to have sued Activision Blizzard (Activision Publishing) (6:23-cv-00050), Alphabet (Google) (6:23-cv-00051), and Apple (6:23-cv-00057) in separate Western District of Texas complaints. Two patents generally related to “displaying additional information about a scene element displayed in a frame of video content” are asserted, with infringement allegations targeting, for Activision, the support for multiplayer functionalities in the Call of Duty: Mobile game; for Google, the support for certain augmented reality (AR) tools in its Pixel-series smartphones; and for Apple, the provision of ARKit in certain iPhones and iPads. The plaintiff has now four times pleaded that it is a Texas LLC, but Texas records do not support that assertion; rather, it appears that FlickIntelligence is a New Mexico LLC associated with a set of figures familiar to patent monetization.
