To punish Dish for not complying with an order to basically stop being a DVR service, U.S. District Judge ordered them to pay about $200 million to TiVo, whose patents were infringed.

What's even funnier was that Dish had ads saying that its DVR service was "better than TiVo", an incredibly ballsy move when a court ruled that you've stolen technology from the party you're claiming to be better than. [Bloomberg]
