TiVo and Microsoft have settled patent dispute


TiVo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. have decided to walk away from patent litigation against each other Thursday, after TiVo’s settlement with Microsoft’s partner AT&T Inc.

Microsoft filed complaints at the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington and in federal court in San Jose, California, after TiVo sued Microsoft client AT&T Inc., which used Microsoft software for its U-Verse TV service.

TiVo has reported in a patent regulatory filing that it didn’t gave patent rights to Microsoft, and it will dismiss the counterclaims against the Microsoft.

TiVo has still patent-infringement litigation against Verizon Communications Inc.
