PlayMedia said the settlement includes a license that allows Nullsoft to use the technology that was the focus of the lawsuit. PlayMedia is also entering into a business relationship with MP3.com that will allow MP3.com to avoid paying any penalties.
PlayMedia sued Nullsoft in mid-March, alleging that the technology in Nullsoft's WinAmp MP3 player was taken from its AMP Audio MPEG Player. PlayMedia originally sought more than $20 million in damages as well as an permanent injunction against Nullsoft.
