Apple recently settled a patent dispute with Burst.com for $10 million. Burst alleged that Apple infringed four patents for transmission of compressed audio and video files in iTunes, iLife, QuickTime and the iPod. A similar suit was settled with Microsoft for $60 million previously.

The real story of this settlement is the relatively moderate amount of payment from Apple. Particularly given a previous settlement of nearly six times more, it seems that Apple may have received a real bargain with its most recent settlement.
