Satellite provider EchoStar has been ordered to pay TiVo $103m for lifting some of their DVR software technology. (Again.) This is great news for TiVo, who hasn't been doing so well lately. Not so much, though, for EchoStar customers, who might end up losing DVR functionality in their set-top boxes for a while. [Reuters]

Now that TiVo has won this and will hopefully be getting paid, I bet we see new lawsuits from them vs. other companies with DVR's as well. Everyone will need to license DVR functionality from TiVo.
