Law360, New York (October 18, 2011, 7:36 PM ET) -- Personal Audio LLC lodged a suit Friday in Texas alleging Apple Inc.'s new iPhone infringes a patent for playlist technology, after a judge's ruling that an $8 million jury verdict against the technology giant did not apply to the patent.
Texas-based Personal Audio claims that Apple violates U.S. Patent Number 7,509,178, titled "Audio program distribution and playback system," with the release this month of the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 operating system.
