Tivo, makers of the popular digital video recorder by the same name, recently won their lawsuit against EchoStar.

TiVo claimed EchoStar violated its patent for a "multimedia time warping system" to pause, rewind or fast-forward live TV programs by recording them on a hard drive.

A federal jury awarded TiVo Inc. nearly $74 million in damages Thursday in a swift ending to a patent-infringement lawsuit against EchoStar Communications Corp., the parent of the Dish satellite television provider.
