TORONTO, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - YANGAROO Inc., (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF) the
industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, is pleased to
announce that a Federal Court in Wisconsin has ruled in its favor on a Motion
to Dismiss brought by Defendant Destiny Media Technologies Inc. (OTC:DSNY).
YANGAROO is suing Destiny for patent infringement in the United States and
seeks an injunction against the sale and use of Destiny's PlayMPE system.
YANGAROO filed the infringement claim following the grant of its United
States patent No. 7,529,712, titled "Content Distribution System and Method"
in May 2009. This patent covers a method of distributing digital content, such
as music and advertising, to selected individuals over a network, including
the Internet. The claim was filed in the United States Federal District Court
in Wisconsin against Destiny Media Technologies Inc. (OTC:DSNY), as well as
Destiny Software Productions, Inc., and MPE Distribution, Inc. In addition to
requesting an injunction, the claim requests the payment of unspecified
damages for patent infringement and other costs to be determined at trial.
"We are very pleased that the court has moved swiftly to rule in our
favor on this motion," said John Heaven, President and CEO of YANGAROO. "The
Court has rejected Destiny's attempt to end the litigation early, without a
ruling on the substantive infringement claims, and has instead set a
scheduling conference so the parties can get to the merits of the matter. We
look forward to expediting this process."
