08:13 EDTAMZNPendrell unit: Court rejects attempts to limit scope of DRM patents
ContentGuard Holdings, a subsidiary of Pendrell Corporation (PCO), announced that on Friday, March 20, Judge J. Rodney Gilstrap of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a 144 page Claim Construction Order in lawsuits ContentGuard filed against several companies who continue to use its patented Digital Rights Management solutions without a license, including Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), DirecTV (DTV), Google (GOOG), HTC, Huawei, Motorola Mobility and Samsung Electronics (SSNLF). In his order, Judge Gilstrap interpreted the language in ContentGuard’s patents in a manner that fully preserves the breadth of ContentGuard’s patented Digital Rights Management technologies. These technologies were developed to enable the distribution of digital media over the Internet and other networks, including cellular and satellite networks, and provide innovative solutions to problems that were once thought to be unsolvable. “We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling,” commented James Baker, ContentGuard’s Vice President for Licensing and Strategic Development. “We believe these claim constructions demonstrate that the online stores defendants provide for buying and renting DRM-protected movies, videos, books, and music and devices that play, run, display or print this DRM-protected content infringe ContentGuard’s pioneering DRM patents.”

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster downgraded eBay (EBAY) to Underweight, the firm's sell-equivalent rating, saying competition from Google Wallet (GOOG), Apple Pay (AAPL), Facebook (FB) and Samsung will weigh on PayPal's valuation and market share over the next three years. Munster notes shares of eBay are up 12% since the beginning of February due to optimism around the PayPal spin-out. He cut his price target for shares to $49 from $55. The online marketplace and PayPal owner closed yesterday down $1.07 to $58.42.

After government websites indicated that Citrix (CTXS), Amazon (AMZN) and others succeeded in getting the DoD to reconsider its awarding of a $1.6B, five-year contract to VMware (VMW), Stifel said it doesn't think VMware has necessarily lost the opportunity, but that the company will now likely face a more competitive bidding process to win the deal.
