Law360 recently reported on a significant win that McKool Smith helped secure on behalf of TiVo’s Rovi Corp. against Comcast Corp. in the International Trade Commission (ITC).

On Tuesday, November 21, 2017,  the ITC  issued a final ruling affirming, in large part, the Initial Determination of Administrative Law Judge David P. Shaw regarding two of Rovi's patents, U.S. Patent Nos. 8,006,263 and 8,578,413, relating to set-top boxes. The ITC found that Comcast violated section 337, which involves imports. The ITC also issued an exclusion order and a cease and desist order prohibiting Comcast (and others at its direction) from importing into the U.S., or otherwise distributing after importation into the U.S., any set-top box that infringes any of the asserted claims of the ‘263 and ‘413 Patents.

The McKool Smith trial team included firm principals Douglas A. Cawley, Benjamin Levi, Josh Budwin, and Roderick Dorman.
