Suing For Patent Infringement No Replacement For Actually Building A Real Business
from the more-focus-on-executing,-less-on-suing dept
TiVo has been spending a lot of effort suing others for patent infringement, but apparently not very much on actually improving their own services and giving customers a reason to buy them over the competition. So while it may be winning some of its patent lawsuits, it hasn’t helped much for the business, which is rapidly bleeding customers and losing marketshare. TiVo basically created this market and owned it for years — but then got complacent. Now, since it can’t compete, it’s gone to a litigation strategy. Perhaps it should have focused more on providing value and competing rather than suing.
