U.S. District Court Rules In Favor Of SeaChange In Patent Infringement Case

Stocks in this article: SEAC

SeaChange International, Inc. (NASDAQ: SEAC), a leading global multi-screen video software innovator, today announced the United States District Court for the District of Delaware has ruled in its favor, rejecting allegations by Arris Group, Inc., that SeaChange had violated a 2006 injunction.

The now decades-old dispute began in 2001, when n-Cube Corporation (whose interest was later acquired by Arris Group) 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.

In today’s decision, the Delaware Court rejected Arris’ allegations, holding that Arris failed to prove that SeaChange’s 2002 design-around infringed Arris’ patent.

“We are pleased the Court has recognized that SeaChange took appropriate steps after the 2001 litigation with n-Cube, and that SeaChange has at all times complied with the Court’s Order,” said SeaChange General Counsel David McEvoy.

“SeaChange provides the most innovative video delivery systems in the world and we are pleased that, with today’s rejection of Arris’ claim, the two companies can go back to competing in their respective markets on the strength of their technology and service, instead of in the Courts,” said SeaChange’s Chief Executive Officer Raghu Rau.
