Yesterday EchoStar, makers of Dish Network DVRs, was ordered to pay over $100m to TiVo for lifting parts of the company's DVR software. Again. Worse still, the companies were told to strip the offending capabilities from customers' DVRs. Or not!
The court has since issued a stay on the order, pending EchoStar and Dish's appeal. In other words, your DVRs are fine, at least until this legal battle—presumably as ridiculously drawn out as the last one—is over. [Reuters]
