    "The owner of interactive television pioneer OpenTV sued Netflix Inc. on Wednesday, alleging the company infringed on patents that cover technology underpinning the fast-growing Internet video sector.

    Switzerland-based Kudelski SA, which owns OpenTV, said in its lawsuit that Netflix infringed on seven U.S. patents covering aspects of over-the-top TV technology (OTT), including: the use of viewer information to make recommendations; digital rights management; and video playback."
