      Adam Carolla just settled the lawsuit filed by a mutant who claims he invented pdcasting in that evil nuisance suit. 

      http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/08/adam-carolla-strikes-a-deal-with-podcasting-patent-troll/

      Here is some analysis:

      https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/08/good-bad-and-ugly-adam-carollas-settlement-podcasting-troll

      This statement certainly applies to me and I assume all us GaragePunk Pirate Radio poscasters: 

      By forcing Personal Audio to prove that it suffered damages, Carolla made it confront the fact that podcasting generates little revenue (for people that claim to have ‘invented’ podcasting, Personal Audio appears not to have understood the industry at all). Carolla is the one of the most successful podcasters in the business. If suing him makes no economic sense, then it makes no sense to sue any podcaster.

      Thanks for posting this, I have been following this situation for a while, thankfully it appears the wicked lame-ass trolls have been stopped again. Podcasting is perhaps the best thing to come from our digital age and needs to remain truly free and unencumbered as the network of the people.

      ChazDaddy - btw I dig your show ;-)
