It appears that podcaster Adam Carolla has seized victory from the jaws of the patent troll... or at least a favorable settlement.
As part of the settlement, both the patent troll and Carolla (along with his business partners) agreed to drop claims against each other over use of U.S. Patent No. 8,112,504, describing a "system for disseminating media content representing episodes in a serialized sequence." According to Courthouse News Service, Carolla had raised more than $475,000 for the Save Our Podcasts Legal Defense Fund, which funded Carolla and his podcast entities' legal defense from a patent infringement claim.
As the dust settles on Carolla's bout with the patent troll, what have we learned?
