U.S. News | Flexiworld Technologies Sues Roku for Patent Infringement


Flexiworld Technologies, Inc. has filed a lawsuit in the Western District of Texas against a streaming device maker, Roku Inc. for patent infringement over using its display and streaming content process.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendant infringed on its registered patents including United States Patent Nos. 8,989,064 (the ’064 patent); 10,346,114; and 10,740,066 by using its display and streaming content process without permission or a license.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant infringed on its products including Express+, Premiere, Streaming Stick, Streaming Stick+, and Ultra products.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the “Roku infringed its ’064 patent, which describes a wireless data output controller method associated with a wireless controller for receiving, over a short range wireless communication, digital content from one or more wireless information apparatus, the wireless controller being externally connectable via a wired connection to an output device for rendering at least part of the digital content received from the one or more wireless information apparatus.”

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant utilized the method and system described in the patent to have a wireless controller connect to an output device such as a television to access digital content in communication with a mobile device.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the infringement has caused lots of damages, unfair competition and confusion.

Flexiworld Technologies seeks declaratory judgment for Roku’s alleged infringement, an award for damages, royalties, costs and fees, and other relief.
