Business briefs: Faberge egg to be sold 

A previously unrecorded faberge egg by the fabled Russian jewelry maker, valued at up to $18 million, is going up for sale Nov. 28, Christie’s auction house said Thursday. The enamel-and-gold egg, one of only a dozen designed to the highest standards for clients other than Russia’s ruling family, has been in the Rothschild banking family since 1902, when it was given as an engagement present.


An appeals court panel signaled Thursday it is likely to rule at least partly in favor of the DVR maker in its patent dispute with EchoStar Communications Corp. (DISH). EchoStar is seeking to overturn a court decision last year that ruled the satellite broadcaster infringed on patented TiVo (TIVO) technology that allows viewers to record one program while watching another.
