ITC Issues Final Determination in TiVo-Comcast Patent Row
- November 25, 2017
On November 21, the International Trade Commission (ITC) issued its final determination in the investigation that began with a complaint filed by TiVo (f/k/a Rovi Corporation) against Comcast (337-TA-1001), among others. The Commission affirmed the determination of Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) David P. Shaw that Comcast’s customers directly infringe two of TiVo’s patents, which are characterized as generally related to “interactive television guide programs that operate on local devices, such as a set-top box, and remote devices, such as a laptop or mobile phone”, thereby establishing a Section 337 violation as to Comcast’s X1 set-top boxes. The Commission issued limited exclusion and cease-and-desist orders commensurate with this conclusion, orders that would remain in place during any appeal, absent a settlement between the parties.
