Creative awarded MP3 player interface patent


— 2:24 AM on August 31, 2005

Creative has been awarded a patent for an MP3 player interface similar to that of Apple's iPod. The patent covers the "automatic hierarchical categorization of music by metadata," and it was filed nearly a year before Apple first announced the iPod. Apple has actually tried to patent the iPod's user interface, but that claim was rejected earlier this month.
