Rovi to Appeal English High Court Ruling in EPG Patent Litigation against Virgin Media

,----[ Quote ]
| Rovi on Monday issued a statement--attributed 
| to its SVP of worldwide patent licensing, 
| Samir Armaly--making clear that it plans to 
| appeal the court's decision: "While we are 
| pleased that the court found all of the 
| patents to be infringed by Virgin, we strongly 
| disagree with the court's ruling on the 
| validity issues, and intend to appeal the 
| decision," the statement read. "We also intend 
| to continue to pursue Virgin and other 
| unlicensed companies for their infringement of 
| our intellectual property, to join the 
| numerous companies who have already taken 
| licenses to our patents issued throughout the 
| world."

Virgin Media wins Gemstar EPG ruling

,----[ Quote ]
| Virgin Media has succeeded in the patent dispute
| brought against it by Gemstar TV Guide. The
| London High Court rulings call into question the
| ability for intellectual property rights holder
| Rovi to enforce its patents both in the UK and
| with operators around the world.
| Gemstar, now part of Rovi, had claimed the
| cablenetâs EPG had breached three patents â EP
| 0969662, EP 1377049 and EP 1613066 â which were
| involved in the display and transfer of
| programme information and metadata. BSkyB,
| Foxtel, Portugal Telecom, Sky Italia and UPC
| Broadband have all signed up to Roviâs patent
| programme.
