Vancouver, Canada – Destiny Media Technologies, the provider
of a secure online promotional music delivery service, said on Tuesday that it
has won a patent dispute with Canada-based rival Yangaroo.
Destiny in May 2009, alleging the company’s Play MPE system infringed on a
patent it owns.
A judge ruled in Destiny’s favor in June 2010, dismissing Yangaroo’s
claim, and on Monday a three-judge panel affirmed that decision, dismissing
the lawsuit in its entirety.
"While we were always confident in our
ultimate success, we are happy to put the expense and the time devoted to this
vexatious litigation behind us. We believe this frivolous suit had no
foundation but was intended to hinder our leading market position," said
Destiny CEO Steve Vestergaard.
