06:17 EDTTWC, VIAB, DIS, NFLX, NWSA, CBS, CVC, GOOG, CMCSACBS braces for a digital battle, WSJ reports
CBS Corp. (CBS) may still be the most-watched network in prime time, but its average overall audience of 11.5M in that time period is down 10% in the fall season so far, compared with the same time the year before, according to Nielsen. Its audience among 18-to-49-year-olds, the demographic most prized by advertisers, has slid 20%. While other big media companies have turned to cable channels, with their dual subscription-advertising revenue streams, CBS occupies only a tiny presence in cable through Showtime. But that may now have to change, reports the Wall Street Journal. Reference Link

08:31 EDTTWC, CMCSAAT&T CEO says net neutrality may end up in Supreme Court, CNBC says
AT&T (T) Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson believes the net neutrality debate may have to be settled by the Supreme Court, reports CNBC, citing a CNBC interview on Wednesday from the World Economic Forum in Davos. Stephenson stated, "We need a neutral Internet... I think everyone agrees with that. Where everyone is getting stuck now is going beyond that." Stephenson also stated the neutrality debate will not affect his company's decision to bid $49B for DirecTV (DTV), though he believes a quick decision from the FCC could quicken Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) $45B negotiations for Time Warner Cable (TWC).

08:07 EDTGOOGUSPTO Examiner reconfirms patentability of Netlist's LRDIMM patent claims
Netlist (NLST) announced that the Examiner in the consolidated reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,619,912 issued an Answer maintaining the patentability of 92 claims related to LRDIMM. The reexaminations were brought in the United States Patent and Trademark Office by Google (GOOG), Inphi Corporation, and SMART Modular Technologies. The 92 patentable claims are generally directed to the fundamental concept of rank multiplication which is integral to the design of the LRDIMM. The Examiner issued the Answer on January 14, 2015, in response to voluminous appeal briefs filed by Google, Inphi, and SMART Modular. The Examiner considered arguments from all parties and ultimately maintained his conclusions as to the patentability of these claims, while maintaining the rejection of 11 other claims. The parties will now have the opportunity to file rebuttal briefs before the reexamination proceeds to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for oral arguments, likely later this year or early next. The '912 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Google in the Northern District of California and Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California. Both sets of litigation have been stayed pending the outcome of this and other reexamination proceedings.
