News Summary: Netflix adopts rights plan

Associated Press Modified: November 5, 2012 at 3:45 pm •  Published: November 5, 2012

POISON PILL: Netflix Inc. has adopted a shareholder rights plan, also known as a poison pill. Such a plan is designed to make it difficult or even impossible for someone to take over the company without an agreement from the board.

ICAHN STAKE: The move came less than a week after activist investor Carl Icahn disclosed a stake of nearly 10 percent in the online video company.

RESPONSE: Icahn called the adoption of a poison pill without a shareholder vote "an example of poor corporate governance."
