Tivo has already proven that they have defensible IP. The only thing your hoped for no contempt ruling would show is that if you are a dishonest dick head, and pay your lawyers enough to mess with the system, you might be able to get away with the theft. At what cost? All Charlie will have done is show he has a big manhood package, but squat when it comes to business sense. Most corporations will be working with Tivo, in good faith, with the knowledge that they can establish agreements that will be beneficial to both them and TiVo.
