In the lawsuit, TiVo makes the claim that Samsung’s mobile devices infringe the patents it once only applied to DVRs. Because Samsung phones are “specifically designed and configured with hardware and software components that allow for the simultaneous storage and playback of movies, videos, television shows, and other multimedia content,” they must be made to pay royalties, TiVo argues. – Joe Mullin, Ars Technica
