Podcasting saved from the patent trolls

Electronic Frontier Foundation reports that it has won a case against a company, Personal Audio, that had threatened podcasters with patent lawsuits. The ruling came from a 3-judge panel for the Federal Circuit in Washington.

EFF had raised money for “save our podcasters” litigation and showed that speakers had podcasted for years before the company applied for the patent.

That such a threat could have been made against ordinary podcasting is indeed shocking. 

Will it have to raise money to save Section 230 from the Backpage mess?
