TiVo Wins

It looks like DirecTV was reading the tea leaves correctly, as TiVo scores a major patent law victory over the makers of the DishTV DVR. If upheld on appeal, the WSJ writes, the case could have "profound implications," as the damage award "bolsters TiVo's financial footing" and puts it "in a better position to negotiate business deals with cable companies and equipment suppliers that make competing DVRs."
