Augme Attack on Yahoo! Streaming Media Patents among the Reexamination Requests Filed Week of October 24, 2011

Scott Daniels | October 31, 2011

Last week Augme upped the ante in its patent fight with Yahoo! by requesting reexamination of two Yahoo! streaming media patents (see inter partes Request Nos. ((4) & (5)).  Yahoo! has accused Augme and its partner World Talk Radio of infringing the patents by operating websites and related infrastructure that employ Augme’s “BoomBox” technology.  The accused websites are VoiceAmericaTM and World Talk RadioTM Network.

Cisco has requested reexamination of a VirnetX network protocol patent – U.S. Patent No. 7,188,180 – which is one of six VirnetX patents in litigation in the Eastern District of Texas (see inter partes Request No. (2)).  Cisco’s request follows requests from the previous week by Apple regarding two other VirnetX network protocol patents – U.S. Patent Nos. 7,418,504 and 7,921,211. 

A request was also filed against an Affinity Labs content delivery method patent (see ex parte Request No. (3)). Affinity Labs has sued Apple for infringing the patent, though Apple is not likely to be the requester.
