DRM Products and Services at Issue in New Delaware Campaign

April 10, 2019

DRM Vectors, LLC, an entity created in Delaware late last month, has initiated a new litigation campaign, suing Alphabet (Google) (1:19-cv-00653), Barnes & Noble (1:19-cv-00652), Lulu Enterprises (1:19-cv-00654), Microsoft (1:19-cv-00655), and Oracle (1:19-cv-00656) in that state. Each defendant is accused of infringing a single patent, generally related to a digital rights management (DRM) system that provides content from an “order server” and verifies content access privileges using an authentication server, through the provision of products and services offering DRM, calling out Google Play and Google Play Books, the Barnes & Noble eBook Platform, Lulu eBooks/eBook Platform, Microsoft’s PlayReady, and the Oracle Information Rights Management platform, respectively.
