Court halts AOL 6.0 distribution
Author: JT Smith
Reuters, via MSNBC: "PlayMedia Software said on Tuesday a federal court ordered America Online to stop distributing the 6.0 version of its software that contains closely held PlayMedia's digital music encoding technology. AOL recently introduced its latest version of its client software, 7.0. It wasn't immediately clear if that software also included PlayMedia's technology; but if it does, AOL might have to halt distribution of it, too."
