Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon to locate a streaming media expert witness to support matters such as patent infringement litigation, trade secret disputes, and ITC cases. A streaming media expert witness typically has specific knowledge and expertise in computer science, streaming video, live streaming, electrical engineering, and/or software engineering. A streaming media expert witness must have a solid understanding not only of the target technology, but also of the video streaming market, market share of industry leaders, and the competitive landscape. A successful expert witness needs to have expertise, and leading experts also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, such as judges and jurors.
Streaming media is an alternative to downloading files, and is very popular on social media (e.g., Facebook, YouTube, Twitter). Using a streaming media device, such as a mobile phone, a streaming digital video can start playing before the entire file has been transmitted. Video, audio, ticker tape, and real-time text are all considered streaming media. Streaming media refers to the delivery method of the medium; not the medium itself.
Litigation support by a streaming media expert witness could include software reverse engineering, a prior art search, expert report, expert opinion, expert testimony, and trial testimony. In addition, clients may seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consultant work. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, retaining counsel may require a testifying expert with prior expert witness experience.
