On December 5, 2006, a California state court provisionally certified a nationwide class action against TiVo for purposes of settlement in Nolz v. TiVo, Inc., San Francisco Superior Court Case No. CGC-05-447918. Members of the class action consist of all persons “who purchased or held a Gift Subscription for TiVo services,” Order, at 2; the class action complaint alleged, in part, that TiVo sold gift subscriptions that contained expiration dates, in violation of California state law. The trial court gave preliminary approval to the proposed settlement, and set March 16, 2007, as the date for the Fairness Hearing.
