Netflix Asks Court To Shut Down Blockbuster's Online Service05 April 2006
Netflix on Tuesday sued rival Blockbuster, claiming patent infringement and
maintaining that, in the words of a company spokesman, "From top to bottom,
Blockbuster has deliberately and willfully copied Netflix's business model." In
its filing, Netflix asked a federal court in San Francisco to shut down
Blockbuster's online rental service. It also seeks unspecified damages. Shares
of both companies fell Tuesday after the lawsuit was filed.
