Comcast hit with (yet another) lawsuit from TiVo

TiVo is continuing its extensive legal battle against Comcast. Rovi Corp., which merged with TiVo in 2016, filed a new complaint against the Philadelphia-based media giant, alleging once again Comcast is infringing on patents related to cloud and multi-room DVR functions. The complaint is the latest in a long line of legal maneuvers TiVo (NASDAQ: TIVO) and its subsidiary Rovi has pursued in the past three years to try and get Comcast to pay licensing fees on DVR-related technology, which brought in $250 million from 2004 to 2016.
