MAXD Advances Permanent Injunction Hearing Against Google and YouTube in Germany

SANTA MONICA, CA and MANNHEIM, GERMANY--(Marketwired - September 17, 2015) - Max Sound Corporation (OTCQB: MAXD) has paid the German Court filing fees to continue their pursuit for justice against the internet giant. MAXD is seeking a permanent injunction against Google and its subsidiaries. The District Court of Mannheim has scheduled the final hearing in the video streaming patent case against Google and YouTube for December 8, 2015. According to German practice, the hearing will be closed on the same day, and a court decision is expected a few weeks later.

As previously stated; MAXD requested the German court to order Google and YouTube to stop streaming video via using the current VP8 or H.264 video codecs and also to stop selling video-enabled devices like Nexus' Android® Phones and Chromecast® sticks. MAXD has further requested information about any profits and that Google and YouTube are declared liable for damages based on patent infringement. MAXD claims that Google and YouTube are using the technology protected by European Patent EP 2 026 277 Optimized Data Transmission, which allows far more economically efficient transport of digital content due to greatly optimized data capacity. The Technology is claimed to be incorporated within H.264, and VP8 video standards used by Google and YouTube.

The publicly traded U.S. based technology company Max Sound Corporation (OTCQB: MAXD) is the inventor of the MAX-D HD Audio Standard, and is holder of the worldwide license and the exclusive right to sue to protect the above referenced patent. MAXD and VSL have already successfully enforced this patent at the International Consumer Electronics Fair Berlin (IFA) 2014. The District Court of Berlin granted provisional injunctions, which prohibited two suppliers of Android devices from promoting their products at the world's largest trade fair for consumer electronics.

In 2010, Google had shown interest in an acquisition of VSL's Technology and used this process to gain a comprehensive insight into the video streaming technology.

Google and many of its subsidiaries are alleged in the proceedings to use the Optimized Data Transmission Technology in one form or another. MAXD believes Google now dominates in their perspective marketplaces in large part because of the VSL technology, Business insider states; In Europe, Google has 90% of the market share in search, 80% market share in mobile, YouTube revenues were approx. 4 billion in 2014 and finally having the #1 selling streaming device.

John Blaisure, CEO of Max Sound, says, "Anyone can see that we are prepared to keep this fight going. We owe it to our shareholders, licensor, employees and all future entrepreneurs. I believe we should reward creativity and forward thinking, not discourage it through corporate theft! Google has tried every way possible to run the bases and now have hired another law firm to take over our U.S. case against them. I have one message for Google and any entity that infringed on these video streaming patents -- we are not going away and will stay the course."
