Triller has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas against a short-form Video App, TikTok for Patent infringement.
The plaintiff alleges that TikTok and its Chinese-owned parent, ByteDance Ltd infringed on its patent by importing and selling its App for iPhones and Android-based smartphones.
The plaintiff reportedly said that Tiller App focuses on the “Green Screen Video”, which is a feature TikTok launched in December allowing users to shoot multiple videos and synchronize them with an audio track.
The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant App now features the stitching together of multiple music videos with a single audio track.
The plaintiff alleges that its patent has been infringed upon and has caused lots of damages, confusion, and unfair competition.
TikTok is a short-form video app that is popular with over 400 million users in China alone.
The plaintiff seeks an injunction, payment for damages, and other settlement has the court deems fit.
The case is pending.
