Netflix handed Brazil’s first permanent patent injunction in ICT field
Netflix has been hit with a permanent injunction in Brazil after losing an infringement case brought by video processing software company DivX. As well as damages, which are yet to be calculated, Netflix was ordered to pay approximately US$4 million in fines for contempt of court for failing to comply with a preliminary injunction, plus legal costs. This is the first time a permanent injunction has been awarded in an ICT patent dispute in Brazil.
