NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.– Acacia Technologies Group settled a patent infringement lawsuit this week with Central Valley Cable TV and added the first cable television licensing agreement to its roster of Digital Media Transmission deals.

Central Valley Cable TV is a cable provider to 10 regions in California and claims only 2,600 subscribers.

Acacia filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Central Valley in the District Court for the Northern District of California on June 14, according to the company, but withdrew its lawsuit in lieu of a patent licensing agreement.

Acacia also signed 21 additional DMT licensing agreements with various corporate websites that use streaming media technology for corporate purposes and e-learning institutions that use streaming for online education services.

Acacia's Executive Vice President of Business Development, Robert Berman, would not reveal the names of the corporations or e-learning entities the company claims to have struck deals with.

Berman told XBiz that the 21 licensees requested that their names not be revealed.

Acacia has so far signed 145 DMT agreements.

On July 7, U.S. District Court Judge James Ware will hear oral arguments at the U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, Calif. for and against Acacia's motion to establish a class-action lawsuit against the adult industry, which could conceivably include hundreds, if not thousands of companies. Ware is expected to submit a written opinion within weeks of the hearing.
