Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

RealNetworks is suing baseball broadcaster MLB.com.

The two have been partners in broadcasting baseball games over the Internet since 2001. But negotiations between the two over renewing a licensing agreement fell apart in early February.

RealNetworks claims MLB has failed to comply with a contract the two signed in February. It is seeking a temporary injunction to enforce its contract and for MLB to "perform its obligations to the letter and spirit of our contact".

MLB has been broadcasting games in Windows Media Player format. RealNetworks has a long running law suit against Microsoft claiming $1bn in damages.
