SonicBlue May Be Up For Sale

from the doesn't-look-good dept

SonicBlue, makers of the ReplayTV digital video recorder, is "exploring strategic options" (generally a euphemism for being in lots of trouble). One of the options, of course, is to try and sell the company. This news should make all those Hollywood folks who have been working to shut down ReplayTV very happy, though it would be yet another loss for consumers. It would be unfortunate if this, in any way, kills the lawsuit the ReplayTV users have filed against Hollywood to make it clear they're within their fair use rights.
