Man, you are confused. Tivo is the little guy here. The question is about TiVo's ability to win more legal victories regardless of who owns their stock.
I believe now what you are saying is that the institutions that own TiVo are in a conspiracy to reduce the value of the stock they own. That makes sense.
No disrespect to you, etothed, but any system that would allow highly-placed physicians in the government to look the other way for years and years while big tobacco companies (and their doctors and lawyers) screw the little guy with their habit-forming, cancer-causing product, would also allow manipulation of stock prices.
Paranoid, maybe. Fantasy, absolutely not.
