Hulu Sued for Patent Infringement

In the lawsuit of the week, Hulu has been sued by Rovi Corporation over patent infringements. The three patents in question have to do with search products and program guide technology. The two corporations have been in talks since 2008 over the infringement issues, but Hulu chose not to enter into licensing agreements with Rovi.

In any case, Hulu isn’t the only online media company that Rovi has taken to court recently. In January it sued Amazon and its IMDb property over five program guide patents.
