Court Rules for SeaChange in Patent Case

The U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware has ruled in favor of SeaChange International (NASDAQ:SEAC) in a patent suit, rejecting allegations by ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) that SeaChange had violated a 2006 injunction.

The dispute began in 2001, when n-Cube (whose interest was later acquired by ARRIS) filed suit alleging that SeaChange's ITV video system infringed an n-Cube patent. After an adverse ruling in 2002, SeaChange redesigned its video system to avoid infringement of the n-Cube patent. Seven years later, in 2009, ARRIS filed a motion alleging that SeaChange's 2002 work-around violated the injunction entered in the n-Cube case.
