Stop podcasting?
« on: May 25, 2014, 09:48:19 AM »
The new phrase seems to be "There's a patent for that."

A company called Personal Audio is claiming they invented podcasting and are now looking for a piece of the action.

After adapting their 1996 patient for an mp3 player to the current podcasting trends, have begun the formal legal notices.

I wonder who owns the patent on trolls?  :taz

I heard about this - I think they will be going after the big podcasters for a quick payout.

Already are. Adam Carolla wouldn't pay up and raised money to take these jackoffs to court.

Yeah, they are trolls sitting on patents they never used. They just want to extort $ from the big fish like Carolla or Nerdist. Even Carolla, who has the biggest podcast of all was being shaken down for $100K. But he said FU. Good for him.
