Amazon, Twitch Facing Patent Lawsuit Over Streaming Tech


Amazon and their live-streaming platform subsidiary Twitch have been hit with a lawsuit that was filed in a San Francisco, California federal court on Thursday by an Israeli company that said their video technology infringes one of its patents.

According to Rueters, B.S.D Crown Ltd, formerly known as Emblaze Ltd, have accused Twitch and Amazon of violating their rights in a patent related to adjusting the quality of live-streaming audio and video based on changing bandwidth availability. The company has previously sued both Apple and Microsoft in the United States for infringing on the patent.

A California jury ruled for Apple in 2014 while Microsoft and Emblaze agreed to drop their dispute in 2015.

BSD said in the lawsuit that Emblaze was founded in 1994 and innovated streaming technology that now “powers the majority of live broadcasts”, claiming that Amazon infringes the patent with its technology for adapting video quality in live sports streams such as NFL games and live-streams. BSD has asked the court for an unspecified amount of money damages (BSD Crown Ltd v. Inc, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, No. 3:23-cv-00057.)
