TiVo settles with Cisco, Motorola and Time Warner (AP via USA Today)
The settlement with Motorola was for $490 million, but Horsham-Motorola Home has since been acquired by Arris. Google's agreement to sell Motorola Home to Arris capped Arris' liability in the case to $50 million.
Update: $490 million was apparently the total size of settlement for both Motorola and Cisco combined. Cisco is responsible for $294 million of it, according to an SEC filing.
