| suit against Microsoft alleging the software 
| giant has infringed three patents related to 
| advertising incorporated in Bing.


US Patent Office Rejects TiVo's Software Claims 

,----[ Quote ]
| Dish Network Corp. (DISH) and Echostar Corp. 
| (SATS) scored a legal victory after the U.S. 
| Patent and Trademark Office ruled that TiVo 
| Inc.'s (TIVO) patent claims over its "time-
| warp" digital video recorder technology were 
| invalid.




TiVo win set aside by appeals court; shares drop

,----[ Quote ]
| Shares of TiVo fell as much as 42 percent on
| Friday after an appeals court set aside the
| company's win in a patent battle over digital
| video recorders with rivals Dish and EchoStar.


On Second Thought... Appeals Court Vacates TiVo's Big Patent Win Over Echostar

,----[ Quote ]
| TiVo's lawsuit against EchoStar for patent
| infringement has been a mostly one-sided
| affair. TiVo appeared to win at every turn, to
| the point that there were stories suggesting
| EchoStar would have to start blocking the use
| of its own DVR. TiVo had celebrated these
| victories by suing others as well, and
| demanding ridiculous sums of money from
| EchoStar. Of course, it seemed odd to us that,
| while all of this was happening, the US Patent
| Office was admitting the patents might not be
| valid. Oops.


TiVo âHooks Upâ With PayPerPost

,----[ Quote ]
| Pay Per Post has been a very controversial company from the start. Because
| they pay individuals to make fake user generated content, that are really
| covert advertisements for sponsors, the FTC has even expressed some concerns
| over the truth in advertising issues related to their service.
