ReplayTV Ready To Fight
from the not-backing-down dept
Unlike many other companies that are being forced by the entertainment industry to back down, SonicBlue’s ReplayTV is ready to fight the industry. Whereas companies like Napster and AudioGalaxy tried to negotiate with the entertainment industry to no avail – SonicBlue believes that negotiating isn’t going to work. They’re just going to put out their products and fight for the right for them to exist. As one exec there says, “it’s virtually impossible for the courts to get you to stop selling your product once it’s on the market.” Of course, they have a history of fighting and winning, since this was the same company that put out one of the first MP3-playing devices and had to go to court over that as well.
