TiVo Seeks Echostar Injunction
Evidently TiVo and Echostar could not agree on a post-judgment settlement. TiVo is now seeking a court order shutting down Echostar’s competing DVR. TiVo is seeking an order that would disable the DVR functionality in all but 192,702 of EchoStar’s DVRs already placed with customers. TiVo also seeks a recall of Echostar DVR products already with distributors and retailers and to stop the production of infringing products. A hearing on the matter is set on June 26/27. Echostar promises to challenge the jury trial verdict.
