Retailers of Roku Products Join Roku as Defendants in Set Top Box Campaign

December 20, 2018

Inventor-controlled MV3 Partners LLC has added cases against two retailers—Best Buy (6:18-cv-00374) and Kohl’s (6:18-cv-00373)—to the suit that it filed this past October directly against Roku (6:18-cv-00308), all in the Western District of Texas. The complaints all assert a single patent, generally related to mobile set top boxes. The October suit targets Roku’s manufacture and sale of Roku TV, Roku’s media players, such as the Roku Ultra, Roku Express, Roku Express+, Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere+, Roku Streaming Stick, Roku Streaming Stick+, and Roku’s related Roku mobile app. The new suits take aim at the retailers’ sale of such Roku streaming media devices.
