Altnet yesterday announced that it has settled a lawsuit against P2P spoofing outlet Overpeer. From the press release: "In a significant turn of events, Overpeer has admitted that its P2P interdiction activities infringed the TrueName patents in question, as alleged by plaintiffs. Both companies have further undertaken not to engage in those activities in future." Both meaning Overpeer and Loudeye. Sounds like a clear cut victory - if it wasn't for the fact that Loudeye bought Overpeer last year and then decided to end P2P spoofing anyway.
