TiVo, Microsoft Dismiss Patent Lawsuits

TiVo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. agreed to dismiss their patent litigation against each other, after TiVo's settlement with Microsoft's partner AT&T Inc. eliminated the motivation for the suits. Microsoft first sued TiVo in a San Francisco federal court in 2010 as part of a broader attempt to provide legal cover for partner AT&T, a customer of its Internet video platform.
