Frame Media, Inc. to Defend Patent Infringement Allegations

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - Frame Media, Inc. (, the leading platform provider for the delivery of personalized content to wireless digital picture frames and connected devices, has been named as a defendant in a patent infringement lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California by Ceiva Logic, a digital photo frame maker. The suit alleges that Frame Media's FrameChannel service and co-defendant Digital Spectrum's wireless digital photo frames infringe on one of Ceiva's patents.

Frame Media Founder and CEO Alan Phillips said that the company plans to aggressively refute the allegations made in the filed lawsuit through the litigation process. "The technology in our FrameChannel service does not infringe on the patent owned by Ceiva Logic. We will defend our service which allows frame owners to program a unique stream of images that is updated dynamically, combining their own photos with dynamic content provided by FrameChannel and its partners."

Phillips comments, "FrameMedia was served a few days ago. We are only at a very early stage of discovery. However, our initial findings suggest not only that Frame Media does not infringe Ceiva Logic's patent, but that Ceiva Logic's patent may be invalid. We look forward to presenting our case in U.S. District Court."

Frame Media has retained the services of Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks (, the largest law firm in New England devoted exclusively to intellectual property. Wolf Greenfield has a substantial and seasoned IP litigation practice that has delivered successful outcomes for clients in courts across the nation.

A court date has not yet been set.
