Personal Audio owns a set of fundamental patents in the portable audio space dating to 1996. The company prevailed against Apple at trial last summer and has since licensed seven other major firms. This is an excellent opportunity to work with a trial-tested set of patents and learn from experienced trial lawyers, licensing executives, and inventors/entrepreneurs.
