Apple pays for iTunes Music Store patent

“Apple has agreed to pay undisclosed royalties to a company that challenged the core concept behind the iTunes Music Store.

E-Date Corp. owns European and US patents that describe a “system and method of distributing [commercial] digital content over electronic and wireless networks”. The company claimed that ITMS was just such a system, and as such required Apple to license its intellectual property.”
