DVForge kills PodBuddy FM product

updated 04:40 pm EDT, Mon May 23, 2005

PodBuddy FM canceled

DVForge announced today that it is not going to be able to sell the previously announced PodBuddy FM, because of a (Digital Lifestyle Outfitters) over a patent that they hold. The device is an in-car holder, charger, and FM stereo transmitter for the iPod. "We have been informed by DLO that they consider our PodBuddy to be an infringement of their company's U.S. patent #6,591,085, and, that they will file suit against us, if we launch the PodBuddy," said CEO Jack Campbell. "We disagree with DLO's claim, and, we believe that our PodBuddy is so utterly different from their company's TransPod product that there can be no question of infringement. But, we are not able to fund the sort of protracted legal battle that would be required to prove our point in court. So, we are forced to kill the PodBuddy."
