Adam Carolla fights back against patent trolls

Personal Audio had sued Carolla over his self-owned podcast, reportedly for $3 million

Perhaps the non-practicing entity (NPE) Personal Audio was looking to quietly reach a settlement with Adam Carolla’s ACE Broadcasting Network over patent podcasts. But then again, Personal Audio should have known that Adam Carolla never does anything quietly.

The media personality, who is known for “Loveline,” “The Man Show,” and many comedy outlets, has taken to the airwaves to combat patent trolls after he was sued over his self-owned podcast, “The Adam Carolla Show.” Carolla believes that a patent troll, Personal Audio, is looking to extort a number of high-profile podcasts, and he is organizing a fundraising campaign to raise legal funds to defeat the NPE in court.
