TORONTO, June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - YANGAROO Inc., (TSX-V: YOO) (OTCBB: YOOIF) the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company is pleased to provide an update on the litigation with Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. ("Destiny").

YANGAROO and Destiny have resolved all litigation between the two parties. As part of the confidential agreement, the parties agree that all allegations of infringement and invalidity on any existing or pending YANGAROO patents will immediately cease. 

As a result, Destiny will drop the Canadian patent invalidity proceedings and its defamation action against YANGAROO and certain of its officers.  YANGAROO will drop its counterclaim for patent infringement in Canada and drop its defamation counterclaim as against Destiny and its CEO.

YANGAROO is pleased with the result as it allows YANGAROO to focus on its business and to provide the best services possible to its customers and clients. As part of the settlement, neither party will pursue legal fees, court costs or royalties pursuant to the above mentioned disputes.

In consideration of the settlement, YANGAROO paid Destiny a lump sum amount totaling $600,000 (Canadian Funds), and granted Destiny certain intellectual property rights relating to the two patents held by YANGAROO that were the subject matter of the dispute.
