That wouldn't be insider trading. Even if D* knew they were going to dissolve the relationship, that would be knowledge inside to D* - not inside to TiVo. The shares sold were TiVo shares, so only information inside to TiVo would be relevant for insider trading.

On the other hand, if D* had learned that *TiVo* had planned on dissolving the relationship (if, say, a D* employee on the TiVo Board of Directors learned it at a Board meeting), that would be information inside to TiVo and D* might well be guilty of insider trading.

Even then, if the relationship wasn't going to be dissolved for 6 months, the SEC might not get too excited.
