TiVo Seeks 'Billions' In DVR Patent Fight With Motorola

Law360, New York (October 17, 2012, 2:56 PM ET) -- TiVo Inc. is claiming "billions of dollars" in damages in a patent battle with Motorola Mobility Inc. over digital video recording technology, TiVo said Monday, urging a Texas federal court to merge the Motorola matter with a case against Cisco Systems Inc.
Google Inc. unit Motorola Mobility and Time Warner Cable Inc. are ignoring the fact that consolidating the two cases for pretrial purposes would prevent duplicative hearings, depositions, discovery and other proceedings, TiVo told the court.
Time Warner — accused of infringement in both the Motorola and Cisco cases — and Motorola say that TiVo is trying to delay the case, but TiVo wants to see both cases resolved as quickly as possible, TiVo said.
TiVo filed counterclaims asserting U.S. Patent Numbers 6,233,389; 7,529,465 and 6,792,195.
TiVo sued Cisco in June, asserting U.S. Patent Number 7,493,015; as well as the '465; '195 and '389 patents.
Attorneys for Motorola, Time Warner, TiVo and Cisco were not immediately available for comment Wednesday.
The case is Motorola Mobility Inc. et al. v. TiVo Inc., case number 5:11-cv-00053, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
