Advertisements Saying a company that has less than 5% of their products market share killed off their competition is amusing at best. Please name one competitor that TiVo killed off by sewing them. All that TiVo's lawsuits did was make TiVo's competitors effectively pay retroactive licensing fees. The reality is that a great number of TiVo's competitors (Dish, Direct, Uverse) have used patents and copy rights to prevent TiVo from competing with them (locked TiVo out of their systems) and others (all cable companies) forced by law to allowing TiVo to compete with them have used their positions to make TiVo's products not work as well as they should (poor cable card support, no VoD access, etc.) or make TiVos products look to expansive by hiding the cost of their DVRs in programing packages. Again I think you need to go look at reality. The court (or Government) has not protected TiVo at all. There are something like 50 million+ DVRs out there now made by at least half a dozen different manufactures that are not TiVos.
