Pardon my preachiness (i wasn't sure where to post this), but as a podcast listener and podcaster this issue is important to me. Major podcasters are being sued by a patent troll group. In this case, the trolls purchased a vague patent that has been painstakingly re-interpreted to mean podcasts. While only the big podcasters are being targeted now, if the trolls win every podcast could be subjected to licensing fees or worse. I am spreading the word among word among my fellow podcast fans.

Interesting, I will have to read up on this. It sounds typical, anything of value is now teeming with legal lice.
