Second NPE Asserts Distributed Content Patent, Most Recently Against DISH

  • July 27, 2018

Following a June dismissal in its prior case, against Grande Communications, Multimedia Content Management LLC has filed a new lawsuit, against DISH Network (6:18-cv-00207), over patents that the NPE received in October 2017 from Catonian IP Management, LLC, an affiliate of monetization firm IP Valuation Partners LLC (IPVal). Catonian IP asserted the same two patents last year against the subscription and pay-per-view services of cable providers Altice (Cequel Communications) and Charter Communications (Time Warner Cable). The patents generally relate to regulating access to distributed content on a network, with infringement allegations against DISH likewise trained on “TV and video-on-demand (‘VOD’) products and services, including network-related services that involve a data center and media devices, such as, but not limited to, the Hopper 3 DVR with Joey receivers”.
