TiVo Victory at ITC
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 4, 2019--
TiVo Corporation (NASDAQ: TIVO) received a favorable determination by Administrative Law Judge MaryJoan McNamara of the International Trade Commission (ITC) that Comcast’s X1 platform infringes Rovi’s patents.
“We are thrilled by yet another legal victory,” said Arvin Patel, Executive Vice President and Chief Intellectual Property Officer at Rovi Corporation, a TiVo company. “This decision demonstrates Comcast’s repeated infringement of Rovi’s patents. We hope that today’s decision will encourage Comcast to pay the necessary licensing fees so their customers can once again access advanced cable features.”
This is the second favorable ITC determination the Company has received from the ITC. In November 2017, the ITC issued a final ruling that Comcast had infringed two Rovi patents around ‘remote record’ functionality. Comcast subsequently elected to remove this popular feature from their products.
Additionally, on May 23, 2019, the ITC instituted a third investigation into Comcast for infringing six Rovi patents including: X1 Sports App, multi-room DVR features, and set-top box integrations of apps like Netflix. That investigation has also been assigned to Administrative Law Judge McNamara.
