Radio Stations Nobbled By Adobe & Microsoft
The amount paid was described by a spokesman for millionaire owner Bill Caralis as a “storm in a teacup” and the amount involved was “infinitesmal”.
“Both parties have reached a mutually satisfactory agreement and it’s just a very small payout from my client’s point of view to resolve the proceedings,” Caralis’s lawyer David Fryatt told Australian IT.
Microsoft lawyer Clayton Noble, who is also chair of the Australian arm of software industry advocacy group the Business Software Alliance, said the BSA was “very happy” with terms of the settlement.
Adobe alleged in the Federal Court that Dubbo stations 2DU and Zoo FM had “flagrantly and deliberately” installed at least seven unlicensed copies of its audio-editing program Audition.
