TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVRs), today announced that the federal district court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division has denied motions to dismiss and transfer TiVo’s patent infringement case against Echostar Communications Corporation (ECC) and affiliated companies. In that case, TiVo has alleged that ECC and certain subsidiaries are violating a key TiVo patent (U.S. Patent No. 6,233,389 issued to TiVo in May 2001, known as the “Time Warp” patent). The defendants had sought to transfer the case out of Texas, and two of the defendants argued that they were not subject to jurisdiction in Texas. The Court denied both motions.
