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.
