It is reported that Adam Corolla has spent $650,000 protecting his right to podcast. In every business, there is an increasing number of threats by so called patent trolls. In this case, a company called Personal Audio claims to have invented podcasting. This week a government board revoked 5 key parts of the patent which would make it more difficult for them to sue podcasters for infringement. The Washington Post covered the story.
