Why are the courts so backed up? How many times can a court order be affirmed and then reviewed. "The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington gave Dish a chance for a better outcome in the litigation, which it has consistently lost to TiVo." What will it take for Dish to finally pay Tivo for its DVR technology. And when will Dish and cable operators finally incorporate Tivo's DVR inside their cable box.
For now, Tivo must continue to fight Dish in a court of law and not partner with them in the entertainment landscape. And while the lawyers get rich, these two companies must spend their monies on court challenges and not on innovation and marketing. And while Dish claims that their DVR does not infringe, the courts have disagreed and told Dish to pay up. Until yesterday. And so it goes on and on.
