Real patent on multimedia streaming

RealNetworks, according to the NYT, have apparently got a patent on multimedia streaming over the Net. I foresee more litigation heading their way via Acacia, which for a number of years has seen a fair degree of success suing broadcasters, the porn industry and educational institutions for infringing their patents on digital transmission via the Net. They've also sued Intel and Texas Instruments, if I remember correctly.
