Cedar Lane Technologies Inc. has filed a lawsuit in the District of Delaware against LiveXLive Media, Inc. for patent infringement concerning its streaming web player and app.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendants infringed on its patents which it owned and are registered with United States Patent Nos. 6,452,609 (the ’609 patent); 6,502,194 (the ’194 patent); 6,526,411 (the ’411 patent); 6,721,489 (the ’489 patent); 7,173,177 (the ’177 patent); and 7,610,394 (the ’394 patent), relating to audio and media streaming as well as playlists.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant infringed on its ’609 patent through its LiveXLive web player which covers a method of operating a web page, displaying multiple sources of streaming content to a user in the first area of a web page; receiving user input to select a playing order for the sources of streaming content; storing the playing order, and displaying the playing order in a second area of the web page.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant web player in whole uses functionality and features reserved in its patents including receiving user input to create, edit, save and play custom playlists and display multiple sources of streaming content.

According to the lawsuit, the defendant’s infringement of its patent has caused lots of confusion, damages, and unfair competition.

The plaintiff reportedly accused LiveXLive of direct, induced, and contributory infringement of the patents-in-suit for its accused products, such as its web player and app.

The plaintiff is seeking a judgment that the patents-in-suit are valid and enforceable, a ruling that the defendant has infringed these patents, and awards for damages and other costs.

The case is ongoing.
