Digital CBT Re-files Suit against AT&T and TiVo
Digital CBT [NPE] filed two separate suits against AT&T Services and TiVo, alleging that the defendants’ DVR services infringe a patent related to digital video processing. Digital CBT filed two suits against the same defendants in March 2012, and the cases were dismissed on June 30, 2012. Digital CBT appears to be related to Agranat IP Licensing. Agranat acquired five patents from Conexant Systems in March 2010 and assigned the patent-in-suit to Digital CBT in October 2011. Hazim Ansari of Novel IP is listed as the correspondent for Digital CBT on the assignment of the patent-in-suit. Other patents originating with Conexant have been the subject of NPE suits filed by AIM IP and Imperium IP in the past year. 7/26, Central District of California, assigned to Judge Christina A. Snyder and referred to Magistrate Judge Patrick J. Walsh, 2:2012cv06418; assigned to Judge Gary A. Feess and referred to Magistrate Judge Ralph Zarefsky, 2:2012cv06421.
