35. Echostar has been granted a stay at this point...,27...

For you that want to sue Echostar, you are following the script that Murdoch wants you to. He wants to KILL Dish Network if he can't buy it. Ultimately the goal is to have a satellite communications monopoly. He's manipulating the system in his favor.

I think a lawsuit against TIVO for not protecting its patents against ALL satellite providers would also be in order. DirecTV has a newer line of DVRs that AREN'T TIVO DVR's too. WHY isn't Tivo suing DirecTV too? Maybe, just maybe, because DirecTV owns a big chunk of them?

For a patent infringement to be granted, you also have to show that you are protecting your patents against ALL infringement, not being selective on who you enforce it. Otherwise, courts may rule that since you've allowed other companies to violate it, you shouldn't be allowed to sue certain companies for violating it. I might expect Echostar to challenge this ruling based on that.

Check out this note about newer DVRs that DirecTV is coming out with that TIVO is NOT suing DirecTV over. DirecTV/Murdoch knows that once they've had TIVO do it's dirty work in destroying Dish Network, then it will basically move most of its customers over to its newer DVR systems that TIVO hasn't tried to sue them over yet because DirecTV still has offered some TIVO based systems it sells. Once Dish Network's out of the way, you know they'll kill Tivo too and have complete control over the satellite/DVR monopoly.
