The Kudelski Group Files Patent Case Against Shaw

The Kudelski Group has filed a patent infringement case against Shaw Communications in Canada. It is alleged that Shaw’s system infringes six Canadian patents owned by Nagravision, and OpenTV, both being subsidiaries of the Kudelski Group.

The patents in question relate to a variety of features in Shaw’s system, including its pay-TV purchasing, distribution, viewership monitoring, and interactive television systems. The suit requests an injunction stopping deployment of Shaw’s release of “BlueSky TV,” which is a licensed version of Comcast’s X1 platform
