The article reports that the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has ruled that Dish Network Corp. had infringed on TiVO's patent for digital video recorders (DVR) in Washington D.C. The panel said the software infringement was enough to uphold the $74 million in damages that the lower court awarded TiVO. Dish's statement said that customers would be unaffected by the ruling since it now uses its own DVR software.
