0

Sirius XMGlobal Interactive Media has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in federal court in Illinois against SiriusXM. Global claims it owns a patent for “apparatus and method to generate and access broadcast information.”


GIM has reached settlements with several other media organizations over the same claims, including A&E, FX Networks, Shazam, and Tribune Media Company, reports the Radio and Internet Newsletter.

Additional lawsuits have been filed against TuneIn, Hubbard Broadcasting, Scripps Interactive, TimeWarner Cable, and ReelzChannel.

For broadcast executives, this could be an example of settling to avoid court costs.
