07:46 EDTCOF, RST, OMX, LOW, AMZN, DFS, SPLS, OWW, HD, ODPRetail 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

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.”
