Spotify sued over music streaming

Music service Spotify is being sued in the US and Europe for allegedly violating patents held by PacketVideo.

The lawsuit claims that Spotify has violated at least two patents owned by PacketVideo that cover methods of streaming music over data networks.

The legal action comes barely two weeks after Spotify launched a US version of its music streaming service.

UK-based Spotify said it would “strongly contest” the claims PacketVideo made in its lawsuit.

Tangled patents

Court papers that kicked off the legal action were filed by PacketVideo lawyers on 28 July. The patents in question were filed in 1995 and became the property of PacketVideo when it bought Swiss-based SDC AG in 2007.

PacketVideo has filed legal papers in San Diego and the Netherlands. It said the lawsuit had been filed following attempts to “amicably resolve” the dispute over the patents outside the court.
