TiVo wants Dish to pay $1 billion

July 16, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

TiVo Inc., the pioneer in digital-video-recording services, is seeking almost $1 billion from Dish Network Corp. in their 5 1/2 -year patent battle, according to a court filing.

Dish, the second-biggest U.S. satellite-TV provider, and EchoStar Corp. face contempt sanctions for continuing to infringe a TiVo patent after being ordered to stop providing DVR service. Dish had argued that it had altered the service to work around the patent, and a federal judge disagreed.
