A federal court in California hears a patent-infringement case that pits online pornographers against Acacia, a high-tech firm that claims to own the patent to streaming media technology. Acacia sued porn sites, as well as nonprofits and small Web casters, for patent infringement. The pornographers sued back, claiming the future of all online media is at stake. NPR's Rick Karr reports.
