NBCUniversal, Personal Audio Settle Podcast Patent Case
January 15, 2015 at 3:56 AM (PT)
NBCUNIVERSAL MEDIA LLC has settled the patent infringement suit brought against it by PERSONAL AUDIO LLC, the firm claiming a patent for the process of distributing podcasts. The case was one of several brought against media companies by the patent holder, including the widely publicized case against ADAM CAROLLA's podcast network, which was settled after CAROLLA aggressively fought back.
Terms of the settlement were not disclosed in TUESDAY's filing (1/13), but the case was dismissed with prejudice and the parties have agreed that they will bear their own costs and fees.
