Adam Carolla lawsuit: Settles with Patent Troll for Podcasting (the debate on crowd funding)
Adam Carolla was sued by a patent troll on podcasting and was refusing to let them drop the lawsuit, fighting the lawsuit for over a year and a half.
Mashable reports, “The 50-year-old comedian and media personality made headlines recently when he declined an offer that included dismissal of the case by the plaintiff, a company called Personal Audio. Why, it stood to reason, would someone being sued decline to dismiss a lawsuit?”
Coach Deb Cole explains why he fought them and how he raised the money to keep on fighting in this interview on the Big Biz Show with Sully Sullivan and Rusty Nailz.
Adam Carolla has broadcast his show live from New Media Expo in Vegas, interviewing attendees right on the trade show floor. Many of the podcasters who attend #NMX see Adam Carolla as their Champion and donated to his crowd funding campaign that he opened to fight this patent troll.
To date, $475,167 was donated through Fund Anything.
Sully Sullivan debates the ethics of crowd funding in this episode of his TV Show. What do you think about what he argued about with @CoachDeb in this show?
