Summary:
Burst.com claims that some of its patents for receiving, storing and transmitting audio and video files are at the heart of the iPod. The company first approached Apple to try to arrange a license for its claimed patents in late 2004. These attempts failed and the company later launched litigation against Apple in April 2006. Apple has argued that the patents do not rightfully belong to Burst, or that the patents are invalid. Last year Burst settled litigation with Microsoft, which took a licence and paid Burst a US$60 million lump sum.
