Non members are able to preview trailers, and then if they like what they see, can purchase a monthly membership to watch our shows via streaming on desktop and mobile platforms.

We have just received the same Infringement notice from Lodsys as the app developers.

They are claiming that they basically invented the internet by asserting that anything that allows for a user to access its content from his or her current physical location, and stores information about said user, and offers a way to sell that user a membership, or product (where the product is full access to the content), is infringing on their patent.

Basically they are claiming to have invented commerce on the internet.

What do?"
