+ - VoloMedia Awarded Patent for Podcasting

Submitted by Kryten107
Kryten107 (1128675) writes "Adding another wide-reaching technology patent to the growing list, Volomedia has been awarded a patent on podcasting. Their press release acknowledges the patent's scope:

VoloMedia, Inc., a portable media analytics and advertising solutions company, announced today it has been awarded patent number 7,568,213, entitled Method for Providing Episodic Media. The patent covers the fundamental mechanisms of podcasting, including providing consumer subscription to a show, automatically downloading media to a computer, prioritizing downloads, providing users with status indication, deleting episodes, and synchronizing episodes to a portable media device.

Ars Technica has more details on the story. This one should be interesting to watch."
