As with so many patent troll cases, the troll is asking for money despite having contributed nothing to the industry. By its own admission, Personal Audio tried and failed at its attempt to make an audio player. Having failed at actually making something, it became a shell company that does nothing but sue on its patents. And now it wants a handout from those who worked hard to create popular podcasts.
Lets donate a bit to help the EFF squash these bugs.
Catch the rest of the podcasts as well if you are into photography.
If you're photographically inclined, you might be interested to check out the new show from the guys at TWiT, in it's "episode zero" format - MostlyPhoto Beta 1 with @mostlylisa (Lisa Bettany) and @treyratcliff (Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs). I'm only about halfway through but it's nice to hear they're not concentrating on gear, but more on what you can do with the gear you already have. Lots of talk about HDR in the initial show (not surprising because Trey is there) and as a bonus at around 28 minutes in you get to watch Trey do a "live" HDR of one of Leo's photos.
Sadly there's not an RSS feed yet, or anything to subscribe to. Looking forward to it going live so I can add it to my own list of photo podcasts.
Update: Beta 2 - Thanks Foz!
