TiVo wins patent case vs. EchoStar [04/13/2006]
TiVo Inc. won a patent battle with EchoStar Communications Corp., in a decision likely to shape competition in the market for digital video recorders. A jury awarded DVR maker TiVo of Alviso, Calif., $73 million after brief deliberations Thursday in a federal court in Marshall, Texas. The jury found that satellite programming provider EchoStar willfully infringed TiVo's patent, which means U.S. District Judge David Folsom could order up to triple the jury award in the case. In a statement, EchoStar called the verdict "the first step in a very long process," and said it was confident the verdict "will be reversed either through post-trial motions or on appeal." The statement also said federal patent officials are re-examining TiVo's patent.
