COPPERPOD HELPS PATENT OWNER LICENSE MULTI-LANGUAGE PLAYBACK TECHNOLOGY TO MAJOR STREAMING SERVICES
A New York-based entrepreneur was looking to execute portfolio analysis and patent monetization campaigns for the companies in the online streaming services domain. To acquire the best possible outcomes, the firm representing the inventor trusted Copperpod to do the technology-heavy lifting and identify the best technical evidence of infringement using the technology skills available at Copperpod. The patent under scrutiny relates to digital recording and signal processing of audio or video data. The technology comprises a processor and a buffer system to process the incoming audio and video signals and store in the buffer the contents specific to a language.
Copperpod experts reviewed the patent comprehensively to construe multiple theories and hence, widen the scope of infringement. This helped in carrying out a detailed and exhaustive market and product search.
Copperpod identified the major players in the market that potentially infringe the claims of the patent. Based on the availability of evidence, our experts picked the streaming services with a strong infringement read. For each product, the key evidence was collected from the publicly available documents and product user guides.
Further, the experts tested all the streaming services on a personal computer or a smartphone to collect the necessary evidence. Using public evidence and product testing, Copperpod drafted 8 detailed infringement charts against the services. Wherever applicable, Copperpod also highlighted claim limitations that were expected to be implemented in the target’s software source code - wherein conclusive evidence would be available as part of the fact discovery process.
It is highly advisable to explore multiple theories of infringement, if possible, in the early stages of infringement - in order to cover multiple products and to preempt non-infringement arguments.
