Streambox and Real settle

Written by Jari Ketola @ 09 Sep 2000 15:03

RealNetworks and Streambox Inc. have settled a lawsuit in which Real accused Streambox of copyright infringement and unfair competition.
Streambox had a number of products that allowed consumers to record and convert Real's video and audio formats. Real argued that Streambox was violating both RealNetworks and it's customers' copyrights. Streambox in turn said that it was merely producing a VCR that could time-shift live Real audio and video streams. The settlement means that in the future Streambox will develop it's products using RealNetworks' development tools and copyright protections.
You can still find Strembox VCR and Streambox Ripper from our software area.
