United American targets Facebook, Instagram in latest patent dispute

United American Corp. sent cease-and-desist notices to Facebook Inc. and its Instagram unit related to their respective geolocation-based image overlays.

United American claims they infringe on its iFramed technology patent. The company has previously sent such notices to Snap Inc. and its corporate clients that use SnapChat Geofilters.

The technology relates to "the implementation of a dedicated mobile content sharing application that can acquire and share new user images or videos, but also gives users the ability to select between distinct locally sourced external content items based on their location to be integrated within their own content before sharing."
