CBS Docked $1.3M In Podcast Patent Suit

CBS suffered a defeat in a Texas courtroom on Monday when a jury came back from deliberations and awarded $1.3 million to Personal Audio LLC over the TV network’s violation of the plaintiff’s patent on podcasting. The result happened after 18 months of litigation for the patent-holding company, which has endured bad press for conducting a wide legal campaign against those in the media and tech industry who digitally syndicate audio shows.
