According to a recent press release Forgent remains on track to sue several media companies over patent infringement of PVR technology. Forgent is suing the likes fo Cable One, The Washington Post Company, Charter Communications, Comcast, TimeWarner, EchoStar and others over the patent infringement claim.

This is by no means a trivial cliam either, Forgent believes that its patent describes how to build a computer-controlled video system that can play back video while recording. So it seems the company believes it owns the fundamental technology behind PVRs.

Forgent is a company that makes most of its money from royalties and going to the courts is nothing new to the company. In the shortest press release I have ever seen Richard Snyder the CEO of Forgent said "We are pleased that this litigation remains on track for a May 2007 trial."
