MUSICRYPT has responded to a lawsuit brought by DESTINY SOFTWARE (NET NEWS 5/4), and asserted its intellectual property rights in CANADA by advising certain CANADIAN users of DESTINY MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES’ PLAY MPE that there is serious patent litigation in progress regarding the use of PLAY MPE in CANADA, and that such use may constitute infringement of MUSICRYPT’s CANADIAN patent.
Regarding DESTINY's suit, MUSICRYPT issue this statement: "MUSICRYPT considers this new suit meritless and believes it is merely to distract attention from the patent infringement liability that DESTINY potentially faces. MUSICRYPT will concentrate on the patent action which is and remains the central dispute between MUSICRYPT and DESTINY. It is not our intent to litigate this matter by press release but rather by proper judicial process, which we are pursuing vigorously. Both actions will be resolved by the court in due course."
