check on briefing and the fly. All this talk about a new patent being issued has no bearing on the previous infringements. That is like saying yes we broke the law but it has taken us 5 years for the trial and oh yeah we made up a new law just for this case. So that first conviction was an error.
Winfast thanks for your informed posts. As you will see, argueing with these guys is like argueing to a brick wall. When Tivo finally shuts is doors and stops service these guys will still have their Tivos plugged in and they'll claim "not to worry, we'll get our service back tomorrow when Echo settles with Tivo"
"The Supreme isn't going to hear this case. This is it.
It will take them a year to decide whether to hear it. Meanwhile the case is in limbo. If they decide not tto hear it the trial can begin."
"There has already been 2 full trials. They lost the appeal "
There has only been one full trial. That trial isn't the issue. The contempt hearing is currently being appealed. Dish says it should have been an infringement trial in front of a jury instead of a hearing in front of a judge. That issue will be decided by the en banc appeals court judges. Then it will be another year before the Supreme Court rules. Then the jury trial can start.
