A Texan inventor has launched an audacious court case against TV-shifting hardware maker Sling Media, claiming a patent infringement.
Stuart Mershon claims the Slingbox, which uses the internet to rebroadcast TV content from a user's lounge to a PC or mobile phone anywhere in the world, infringes on a system he invented to transmit home audio signals to a remote speaker over wireless telephone networks.
The case could test the concept of "place-shifting" - the notion that technology can free consumers to view content at any location.
Sling Media, who we interviewed in October, recently inked a deal with mobile phone network 3 to make its services available in the UK, Denmark and Sweden.
