Patent Trolls in Podcasting Underscore the Importance of Adli Law Group, P.C.

Dr. Dariush Adli and his team have earned a reputation as the "go-to" law firm for defending patent owners from attacks from patent trolls like those currently threatening podcasters with legal action.

LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent years, the broadcasting industry has changed dramatically due to the emergence of podcasting by personalities – some expert, some novice – in nearly every field and niche. The result has been new opportunities for a broad and diverse array of individuals, startup and established businesses, making podcasting a source of considerable innovative efforts of the sort that the patent, copyright and trademark litigation team at Adli Law Group, P.C. has garnered acclaim in defending.  Ever since its establishment in 2010, innovators, small businesses as well as multi-billion dollar global enterprises around the globe have trusted Adli Law Group, P.C. as their litigation attorney that offers cogent legal advice for today's rapidly changing business landscape. That's why Adli Law's patent lawyer team has been concerned to learn of a recent uptick in lawsuits that may jeopardize innovative podcasters.

ARS Technica reports that an entity named Personal Audio LLC has made a reputation for "patent trolling" by asserting patents with broad claims against businesses in the area of basic and podcast technology. Personal Audio has filed its lawsuits In East Texas, claiming that its patents on "episodic content" technology, stemming from founder Jim Logan's defunct "Magazines on Tape" business, entitle it to royalties from every podcaster that uses the technology. For the podcasting community – and the opportunities it affords – the consequences of a ruling in favor of Personal Audio LLC could be far-reaching, which is why the team at Adli Law Group, P.C. has followed the case closely.

For years, Adli Law Group, P.C. has specialized in the practice of patent, trademark, copyright acquisition and litigation, with a goal of providing each client with the highest quality service possible at a competitive price. Led by the distinguished Dr. Dariush Adli, PhD, Esq., the Adli Law team offers specialized skill and experience in patent law. In fact, prior to founding the firm, Dr. Adli served as a lead attorney at a large international law firm in Los Angeles. Guided by his 16 years of experience practicing law, Dr. Adli has built a first rate team at Adli Law that has represented clients in various technical fields including computers, software, telecommunications, consumer electronics and much more.

For businesses that may be affected by the Personal Audio LLC troll suit – including NBC, CBS, Fox and other well-known broadcasters – the results of the case look favorable, thus far. After a recent hearing, US Magistrate Judge Nathaniel Cousins issued a ruling against Personal Audio LLC. However, a final written decision is still months away, allowing Personal Audio LLC a chance to argue for a change in the ruling. Yet, no matter how the case eventually turns out, one fact is clear – attacks by patent troll concerns like this on innovative businesses is proving more disruptive than ever for legitimate entrepreneurs, artists and inventors, the legal acumen, experience and dedication of Dr. Adli and his team are more essential than ever.
