CG Technology sued FanDuel and DraftKings because the firm claims that fantasy sports betting sites violate seven patents.

C

o-plaintiffs in both lawsuits are Interactive Games Ltd., of London and Interactive Games LLC, incorporated in Nevada with its principal place of business in New York City.

 

Patents at issue transmit identification code and game control signals to a processor, enabling firms to identify players and approve them; allow the fantasy sites to monitor games, track results, generate user pay records, and provide other information

 

CG Technology, formerly known as Cantor Gaming, operates several race and sports books in Las Vegas and provides statewide mobile and online gaming, race and sports-betting applications that Nevada residents and visitors can use to place race and sports bets and gamble online, so long as they are within Nevada's borders.

The firm said that FanDuel and DraftKings advertise and operate in Nevada and that they are trying to gain regulatory approval to provide daily fantasy sports contests for a fee.

They claim FanDuel and DraftKings violate at least seven patents and ignored cease and desist letters and efforts to negotiate a settlement.

Patents at issue transmit identification code and game control signals to a processor, enabling firms to identify players and approve them; allow the fantasy sites to monitor games, track results, generate user pay records, and provide other information.

The tech firms seek an injunction, damages for patent violations and increased damages for willful infringement. They are represented in both cases by Molly Rezac with Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart.
