Bloomberg reports that a federal jury in the Lonestar state found that Cupertino’s iPod players infringed on patents for “downloadable playlists,” right around two years after Personal Audio initially filed the claim for a staggering $84 million. We’re told that the inventions cover “an audio player that can receive navigable playlists and can skip forward or backward through the downloaded list,” and while Apple unsurprisingly stated that it wasn’t actually using those very inventions, that hasn’t stopped the courts from disagreeing just a wee bit.
