In a federal copyright-infringement lawsuit against a former employee, Comcast Corp. alleges that, while he was employed by the company, the employee developed software to track TV viewership patterns using set-top boxes and then tried to license the technology back to Comcast for millions of dollars. The employee filed for two patents and created a company for marketing the software.

According to the suit, Robert A. Orlowski, the former employee, signed a trial license agreement on Comcast's behalf for the software in the spring of 2012. Ballard Spahr partners Hara K. Jacobs and Stephen J. Kastenberg are representing Comcast in the matter.
