No, not the Dish Network/EchoStar lawsuit, but rather a suit from Lycos. Back in January 2007 Lycos sued TiVo, Blockbuster, and Netflix for patent infringement over their recommendation engines. The San Jose Mercury News reports that TiVo has settled the suit with Lycos.
Financial terms weren’t disclosed in a May 30 court filing that said the two sides settled their dispute. TiVo General Counsel Matt Zinn said the Alviso-based company paid Lycos an “immaterial amount of money” to end the suit “before the case went very far.”
So that’s off TiVo’s plate, Blockbuster and Netflix remain in the case which is pending in federal court in Boston.
