Judge Allows Blockbuster Countersuit Against Netflix to Proceed

A federal judge in San Francisco on Aug. 23 allowed Blockbuster to proceed with antitrust claims against Netflix, denying three motions Netflix had made to scuttle or delay the suit.

Blockbuster started Blockbuster Online two years ago, challenging Netflix's domination of the on-line video rental business. In April, Netflix sued Blockbuster for alleged business method patent infringement, and Blockbuster responded with the antitrust suit.
