Thread: No Double Dip For Personal Audio in Second Infringement Case Against Apple

    Default No Double Dip For Personal Audio in Second Infringement Case Against Apple



    Personal Audio's second suit against Apple, which was only reported last week, has already been shut down by Judge Ron Clark.

    Clark in his decision cited the $8 million Personal Audio received in their first suit against Apple as enough money to cover both complaints. If you remember, Personal Audio's original suit dealt with how a number of older iPods used playlists. The new suit focused on iPhone 4s, iPads, and modern iPods and how they too violated the same patent.

    Judge Clark went as far as to deny Personal Audio's request for a second trial. I'm sure Personal Audio will continue to sue any and everything under the sun with the patents they hold, but Judge Clarks swift decision is a nice change of pace compared to the usual snail's pace legal system.

    It's kinda sad how Apple Fans wish death to any company that opposes Apple, yet they find 'patent trolls' evil and slimy.

    Sounds like bad strategy by Personal Audio. They probably should have thrown the modern devices in there as well all in one lawsuit and they probably would have gotten more than $8 million.

    If anything that judge should have at least ordered Apple to pay royalties to Personal Audio since Apple continues to make products with the same features that violated the patent of Personal Audio.
