It's insider trading if you know something is going to happen that will significantly effect the stock, up (buying) or down (selling), and that information isn't available to the general trading public, and you act on it. It doesn't have to be Tivo information in this case.

If DTV were going to shed itself of Tivo completely, selling all Tivo stock would be a problem.

In reality, DTV knows that something will happen, either very positive (all DTV DVR's are Tivo) or very negative (NDS becomes the new DVR) for Tivo. By selling Tivo stock now, they deal with the future negative (likely 6-36 months out at worst), and with the future positive.

The only thing we really know for sure is DTV won't be buying Tivo. Other than that, their actions can be interpreted either as something negative, and equally as something positive for Tivo.

DirecTV + Tivo is better than Cable, you're wrong if you don't agree.
