LXer: Netflix roasts Rovi’s “interactive TV guide” patents at ITC

Published at LXer:

One of the businesses of the multifaceted Rovi Corporation is the creation of "interactive program guides," like the ones you might see on the DVR that comes with your cable or satellite service. Cable companies like Comcast buy Rovi's online guide services.There are other video-on-demand companies that don't want to use Rovi's guide services, but Rovi wants them to pay up anyway. The company believes the trove of patents it has acquired over the years mean it owns rights to a wide array of what are essentially online television guides.
