TiVo Gets Speedy Results In EchoStar Patent Trial
from the wasting-no-time-at-all dept
There’s a reason that California-based TiVo filed its patent lawsuit against Colorado-based EchoStar in the small town of Marshall in East Texas. The US District Court there is positively famous for running through patent cases (and almost always giving the patent holder a win) in record time. The TiVo case appears to be no exception, with a quick verdict awarding TiVo $73.9 million for EchoStar’s infringement of TiVo’s patents. Of course, while some are making this out to be a big win for TiVo, it’s quite likely that EchoStar will appeal — and we doubt the higher level courts will run through the case quite so fast.
