On Monday, March 2, 2020, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the International Trade Commission's finding that Comcast cable boxes infringe two Rovi Corp, a subsidiary of TiVo Corp., patents covering interactive program guides, leaving intact the Commission's ban preventing Comcast from importing X1 boxes.

A three-judge panel's precedential opinion unanimously rejected Comcast's argument that the company cannot be held liable because the X1 set-top boxes with the two infringed patents owned by Rovi Corp. were imported by third-party companies and ultimately sold to the cable company within the U.S.

TiVo Corp is represented by McKool Smith Principals Doug Cawley, Joshua Budwin, Rod Dorman, and Joel Thollander.
