Creative loses suit against Aureal

— 2:28 PM on December 11, 1999

I saw word at Blue's that Creative has failed to convince a jury Aureal infringed on its patents in making the Vortex line of chips. Creative didn't get the $61 million in damages it had been asking, nor does Aureal have to cease production of Vortex and Vortex 2 chips. I'm all for protecting one's innovations in the right circumstances, I suppose, but this is one patent-related lawsuit I'm pleased to see resolved in a victory for the defendant. Let 'em fight it out in the market.
