Seven top radio groups have received a stay in the federal lawsuit filed against them by Mission Abstract Data, which does business as DigiMedia, regarding patent rights to providing music from hard drives for AM and FM stations, pending a review by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The latter is said to have turned down DigiMedia's patent assertions for radio, but DigiMedia may appeal the ruling until Dec. 7. The radio defendants include Beasley Broadcasting, CBS Radio, Cox Radio, Cumulus, Entercom, Greater Media and Townsquare Media.
