The company Dynamic Data Technologies filed a patent lawsuit by Apple, which claims that a U.S. Corporation violated 11 patents related to streaming, processing and optimizing video.
On Monday, the fifth of November, in the district court of the United States city of Marshall, Texas, a lawsuit was filed in which Dynamic Data Technologies accuses Apple of violating 11 of its patents.
The claim contains 68 pages and tells about the presence of 11 violations, one for each patent. The prosecution lists such Apple products as Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, and even some specific versions of the iOS operating system.
The lawsuit ends with a request to render a decision in favor of Dynamic Data Technologies, to admit Apple is guilty of “willful, wanton, malicious, dishonest, intentional, knowingly wrongful, egregious, or characteristic of a pirate” action, and to compensate the losses of the company and the fees of the lawyer.
In the indictment there are many indications that this is another case of “patent trolling” non-practicing entity. The documents show that the plaintiffs founded the company in April 2018 and registered in the state of Delaware.
Marshall, Texas is a major venue for patent trolling, and every year in this County annually serves thousands of claims.
This is not the first lawsuit to which Apple was facing, because for many years the iPhone developer has to contend with a number of firms such as Uniloc, Soverain Software, Acacia Research and VirnetX.
