    US Patent Office struck down claims 31 and 61 of Tivo's patent

    More like they don't respond to insults from someone they have already ignored.

    But I'm game.

    First, the PTO doesn't "strike down" patents it's already issued.

    Second, striking down a claim doesn't invalidate the whole patent.

    Third, Echostar/Dish/Hughes, which is not a small company, just got #$%$-slapped by a federal appeals court for yet again failing to satisfy its obligations under the law. The patents are plenty strong, and the courts keep saying that.

    Whereas you, you're not a court. You're a speculator stuck on the wrong side of events, and begging for mercy in your own, psychotic way. You can cure that yourself.
