    I can not read legal language stuff, I just know they started this in 2012 and now made an appeal.

    Looks like WAG Acquisition LLC has been trying to sue these camming companies, as the streaming software violates a patent they have. The courts made a ruling before and they are appealing that. The camming companies just gave an opening response brief, so I'm guessing they are just waiting for trial.

    Without being able to see the briefs I don't know much more. (Although if anyone has access to LexusNexus or WestLaw you could look them up)

    Ah! Here we go. I was actually wrong, the original case is Webpower Inc (Ifriends) arguing that the patents that WAG Acquisition LLC have shouldn't exist because its not patentable.

    https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/p...2016-01238%2F1 - the original petition
    https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/p...016-01238%2F22 - the ruling on the first case thats being appealed now

    It's a lot, most of it is just explaining the streaming technology. But long story short, they ruled that its not patentable because its a logical way to stream that anyone who understands tech could figure out (not an insult, its from 35 U.S.C. § 103(a))

    So now WAG Acquisition LLC is appealing that.

    Which explains why so many sites streaming seems all the same as for user experience.

    it could really have nothing to do with ifriends closing business.
