Looks like Vic Migogna is not the only one suing workers of Funimation, but apparently, Funimation might be in trouble with the FunimationNow service. According to One Angry Gamer website, Kojicast LLC is suing Funimation for infringement in regards to FunimationNow, the streaming service. I am not going to go over what’s already said but you can look it up on the website and watch the video. Apparently, what is going on here is Kojicast LLC has filed a suit against Funimation on April 24th, 2019. Here is what the suit is described:
In the suit it alleges that Funimation used the ‘683 Patent in their FunimationNow streaming technology that allows users to stream Funimation content from their mobile device and then pick up and resume that content on additional devices, such as home computers or smart TVs.
According to One Angry Gamer, Funimation is in trouble for allowing users to use the FunimationNow app to watch a show and then resume watching it on another device.
One Angry Gamer:
It’s only 22 seconds long, and the relevant part is at the 16 second mark, where it advertises episode progress syncing across devices, so you can play or watch the content across multiple devices.
You can read more at the wesbite about this. If this is happening, Funimation is getting sued twice this year. One is for the Vic Migonga case for having coworkers Monica Rial, her boyfriend Ron Toye and Jamie Marchi for deflamation and false accusations. Second is this from Kojicast LLC and FunimationNow.

Yeah I can’t believe Funi is getting into more trouble.
I think Kojicast is a patent troll. They did the same thing to Dailymotion. It was filed in Eastern Texas Court, so maybe they are based there and just decided to try their luck against another Texas company.
Yeah that’s what I heard from the video. They did with Dailymotion. I wonder how will the outcome will turn out for them targetting Funimation.
