Spotify Sued for Patent Infringement

Spotify Sued for Patent Infringement:
A few weeks after finally entering the U.S. market — and reportedly amassing 70,000 paid users — music subscription service Spotify is being sued for patent infringement by wireless multimedia platform creator, PacketVideo.

According to TechDirt, the patent in question is for a “Device for the distribution of music information in digital form.” The patent was filed in the ’90s, and was purchased by PacketVideo a few years ago. Now, the company is claiming that Spotify is infringing on the patent, causing “irreparable harm and damage” to its business, according to the suit.
