SonicBlue and TiVo Make Up11 Nov, 2002 By: Hive News
SonicBlue Inc. and TiVo have agreed to drop patent infringement suits they filed against each other last year that are pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
Each side will dismiss its claims against the other without prejudice.
"We believe our energies are better spent expanding the market for Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) rather than fighting each other,” said a joint statement from the companies. “Both sides believe in the merits of their respective positions, but the overall success of the DVR category is what is most important to the companies at this time."
