Gemstar Loses Again

Publish date:

One day after the International Trade Commission declined to review a ruling
that found that Scientific-Atlanta Inc., Pioneer New Media Technologies Inc. and
EchoStar Communications Corp. didn't infringe on Gemstar-TV Guide International
Inc.'s patents, an Atlanta federal court handed Gemstar another legal setback

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia granted S-A's
motion for summary judgment in a separate case involving Gemstar, and the court
rejected Gemstar's cross-motion for summary judgment.

The court found that S-A, Pioneer and EchoStar did not infringe on two of
Gemstar's patents.
