We still find the timeliness of the case a little dubious, but it certainly didn't take very long for a winner to be determined in TiVo's patent suit against EchoStar -- the jury apparently voted in favor of the plaintiff. What this means in terms of hard numbers we don't yet know, but it sounds like TiVo's going to have a windfall of technology licensing fees due their way sometime soon.
P.S. To our TiVo stock holding
fans, an interesting tidbit: your stock, as of this writing, is up almost 20%. Damn.
