EchoStar sues TiVo, Humax over patents
TiVo filed a suit against EchoStar in January of last year alleging infringement of its "multimedia time warping system" patent. That has been a slow-moving case, with jury selection set for Oct. 4. The lawsuit figures prominently in TiVo's efforts to enforce its patent portfolio.
Humax licenses TiVo's technology and manufactures and sells consumer electronics devices that include DVR features.
