07:46 EDTLOW, AMZN, DFS, SPLS, OWW, HD, ODP, COF, RST, OMXRetail websites shift prices, deals according to shopper information, WSJ says
The idea of an unbiased, impersonal Internet is now giving way to an online world that is increasingly tailored and targeted. Websites are adopting techniques to find information about visitors to their sites, in real time, and then deliver different versions of the Web to different people, reports the Wall Street Journal . Prices change, products get swapped out, wording is modified, and there is little way for the typical website user to spot it when it happens. The Journal identified a number of companies, including Staples (SPLS), Discover Financial Services (DFS), Rosetta Stone (RST) and Home Depot (HD) who have consistently adjusting prices and displaying different product offers based on a range of characteristics that could be discovered about an Internet shopper. While it's legal, shoppers don' like it. Reference Link

15:02 EDTAMZNRovi issues statement in response to court ruling in Amazon case
The U.S. Court of Appeals issued its decision in Roviís (ROVI) patent infringement litigation against Amazon (AMZN). Rovi had sued Amazon for infringing the two patents at issue in the decision. The appeals court sided with Amazon and found that the District Courtís interpretation of the claims of the patents was correct and therefore Amazon did not infringe these patents. "We are disappointed by this decision," said Rovi executive VP Samir Armaly, worldwide intellectual property and licensing. "It should be noted that this decision relates to only two patents in our extensive portfolio. We believe that our portfolio is even more relevant to Amazon today and going-forward than when the present litigation began in early 2011. Since that time, Amazon has continued to expand its video and over-the-top offerings through new products like the recently announced Fire TV. As illustrated by various recent agreements, Roviís patent portfolio continues to be recognized by leading companies looking to deliver compelling video experiences across multiple screens. We plan to continue to pursue Amazon going-forward to take the necessary licenses under our patent portfolio, not only to protect our rights but also the rights of our existing licensees in this space."
