Rothschild Broadcast Distribution Systems, LLC v. Ellation, LLC

Case Summary

On August 30, 2021, Rothschild Broadcast Distribution Systems, LLC (“Plaintiff” or “Rothschild Broadcast Distribution Systems”), represented by Stephen Michael Lobbin of SML Avvocati P.C., filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Ellation, LLC (“Ellation” or “Defendant”), seeking damages and injunctive relief among other reliefs for the alleged infringement of U.S. Patent No. 8,856,221 (the “`221 Patent”), entitled “System and Method for Storing Broadcast Content in a Cloud-Based Computing Environment” owned by the Plaintiff. This case was filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California with Judge Laurel Beeler presiding. 

 

In its complaint, the Plaintiff alleged that, “The ‘221 Patent solves problems with the art that are rooted in computer technology and that are associated with electronic transmission, loading, and storage of location information, as well as automatic provisioning of route guidance. The ‘221 Patent claims do not merely recite the performance of some business practice known from the pre-Internet world along with the requirement to perform it on the Internet.”

 

The Plaintiff further alleged that, “Accordingly, Defendant has infringed, and continues to infringe, the `221 Patent in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271. Upon information and belief, Defendant has infringed and continues to infringe one or more claims, including at least Claim 7, of the ‘221 Patent by making, using, importing, selling, and/or offering for media content storage and delivery systems and services covered by one or more claims of the ‘221 Patent.”

 

The Plaintiff also alleged that, “Defendant sells, offers to sell, and/or uses media content storage and delivery systems and services, including, without limitation, the “VRV” media delivery platform, any associated hardware, software and apps, as well as any similar products (“Product”), which infringe at least Claim 7 of the ‘221 Patent.”

 

The only claim for relief laid down by the Plaintiff is for the alleged infringement of the ’221 Patent, wherein the Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant has knowledge of its infringement of the `221 Patent, at least as of the service of the present complaint, and that Defendant has committed these acts of literal infringement, or infringement under the doctrine of equivalents, of the `221 Patent without license or authorization.

 

In its prayer for relief, the Plaintiff requested the Court to enter a judgment for Plaintiff on this Complaint on all cases of action asserted herein; enter an order enjoining Defendant from further infringement of United States Patent No. 8,856,221 (or, in the alternative, awarding Plaintiff running royalty from the time judgment going forward); award Plaintiff damages resulting from Defendants infringement in accordance with 35 U.S.C. § 284; and award Plaintiff such further relief to which the Court finds Plaintiff entitled under law or equity.
