Sonos Declares Patent Victory

Santa Barbara-based Sonos, the developer of whole-home music streaming systems, has declared victory in a patent infringement suit, which had been filed against the firm in 2012. Sonos said it has declared victory in a case filed by a "patent troll" in 2012, in what it says was a "major victory" for the company in helping the company and others fight back against "baseless assertions" by patent assertion entities (PAE). The case--filed by Black Hills Media--had been slated to go to trial in June.
