Yangaroo wins motion on U.S. patent action fees

TORONTO, Aug. 25 /CNW/ - YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTC: YOOIF), the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, reported that The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin denied a motion by Destiny Media Technologies Inc. (OTCBB:DSNY) ("Destiny") for attorney's fees, noting that Destiny had failed to prove that YANGAROO's case was unjustified or brought in bad faith. The Court held that Destiny had failed to prove that YANGAROO's case was unjustified or brought in bad faith because Destiny's own press releases provided sufficient information to create a belief that its servers could be located in the United States. The Court stated that the speed with which YANGAROO proceeded through this litigation undermined Destiny's assertion that YANGAROO was attempting to delay its resolution. YANGAROO agreed to proceed under the Fast Track procedure, agreed to limited discovery, and agreed to submit briefs on a single issue, and did not ask the Court for a single extension of time during the litigation. Finally, the Court noted that YANGAROO's claim was not precluded by existing law and, therefore, disagreed with Destiny's contention that the suit was baseless. YANGAROO has always believed, and continues to believe, that its claim against Destiny is meritorious.
