Stale News: BitTorrent Sued for US Patent Infringement

The popular P2P sharing entity has been sued for infringement of the US patent 7301944 by Tranz-Send Broadcasting Network. The patent is titled “Media File Distribution with Adaptive Transmission Tools”.  

I am yet to go through the patent claims and the pleadings in the suit, but BitTorrent is not new to IP litigation although this seems to be the first suit in which patent infringement has been alleged against it.

We’ll follow the proceedings in the suit and keep our readers posted.
