November 18, 2010 - A company called Patent Harbor LLC sued several Hollywood studios for infringement of a patent related to the way DVDs and Blu-Ray discs use a menu to organize and skip to chapters and scenes.

Several major films are targeted by the complaint, including Twentieth Century Fox's Predator, Disney's Chronicles of Narnia, Time Warner's The Wire, Lightstorm's Avatar, and Summit's The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

The patent is called "Method for Assembling Content Addressable Video," and Patent Harbor states in its complaint that it is seeking compensatory damages and post-judgment royalties.
