The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is pursuing an interesting strategy to protect podcasting from patent troll, Personal Audio. Hopefully the newest targets of lawsuits, CBS and NBC, will use their considerably legal firepower to crush the troll instead of settling. That does not necessarily help smaller organizations or individuals. The EFF is starting a campaign to identify “prior art” that will invalidate Personal Audio’s patents for all time.
