I disagree, Rogers wont accept lowball settlements now>because he has the cash clout to play hardall... When your core business is trying to make a financial comeback as such in Tivo's case,and you are being handed 1/2 billion bucks to stop yearsmore of litigation,I say Tivo did ok for themselves. Now this Tivo win sets up ALL the other cases with ATT Verizon Microsoft and Motorola. Tivo now has a boatload of cash and a HUGE patent win under their belt. Who has the advantage now? GLTA.
That is exactly right. Rogers has literally used a publicaly held company to churn insane amounts of money himself and company execs without regard to shareholders. And the DISH settlement is money, but really not a win. Attempting to play it as leverage against the other big boys is a careless, empty spin. Yet not at all out of Roger's character.
