Apple Pushed Sports to Infringe Video Patent, Jury Told

Apple Inc. pushed organizations such as Major League Baseball to adopt its format for streaming live video, causing them to infringe a patent, a lawyer for Emblaze Ltd. told jurors at the start of a federal trial.

Martin Pavane made his opening statements today to a jury of five women and four men in San Jose, California. U.S. District Judge Paul S. Grewal before the trial limited Emblaze’s case to seven video-streaming services, such as MLB.com’s “At Bat” and WatchESPN.
