HISTORY OF PLAYLIST LICENSING


Fullplay Media Systems, Inc. was founded in 1995 and designed embedded software and hardware solutions for the emergence of converging Internet, digital media, and consumer electronics markets, namely the digital media revolution of the MP3. Fullplay engineers optimized the MP3 digital format, Microsoft’s Windows Media Audio, and other codecs for portable media players.

Fullplay created dozens of products for developers, to include reference media player designs and software development kits as well as consumer products ranging from the Listening Viewing Station deployed by Transworld’s FYE stores, to the Iomega HipZip using the miniature Clik! drive technology.

In 2006, inventors, engineers, and individuals once associated with Fullplay acquired all company assets in order to continue research and development. Between 2001 through 2010, Fullplay engineers worked with Microsoft’s Smart Personal Objects in the development of the MSN Direct smartwatch, Microsoft’s PlaysforSure, PlayReady, Media Transport Protocol, UPnP, and countless other digital media initiatives. Fullplay engineers developed a number of digital music delivery systems with all the major music labels and consumer set-top boxes offering top tier studio content.

In February 2010, Fullplay’s “playlist” patent was issued and the Fullplay team continues to innovate and make available its intellectual property for license. Playlist Licensing is broadening its customer base to focus on pure research, development, and licensing of future technologies that will shape the world.
