TiVo Sued in Video Playback Campaign Otherwise Facing PTAB Trials and a Challenging Claim Construction

June 20, 2020

Virentem Ventures LLC (d/b/a Enounce) has sued TiVo and parent company Xperi Holding Corporation (1:20-cv-00787) over the provision of TiVo video systems offering two features: QuickMode, which allows users to play videos back at faster than normal speed with pitch-corrected audio; and SkipMode, which allows users to skip commercials and automatically distinguishes that content from show content. The plaintiff’s first suit, filed against Alphabet (Google, YouTube) in June 2018, has hit a few snags, including a stay in the district court in light of trials instituted by the PTAB to review nine of the 11 patents asserted there, as well as a claim construction order from Judge Maryellen Noreika in the District of Delaware—a key aspect of which Enounce quickly asked the court to reconsider.
