TiVo Corp. won an appeals court ruling that could help it in its long-running fight over patent royalties with Comcast Corp.

An import ban on certain Comcast television set-top boxes issued by the U.S. International Trade Commission was affirmed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The decision involves the first of three disputes between the companies at the trade agency in Washington.
