I think they are suing the people I buy the myyogaonline downloads from ...

Does this mean - and I can still purchase them as a non-member - that the price of them will become out of my reach ... because of a lawsuit?

Yup:

Thanks for sharing, YogaGlo doesn't have any right to patent the way to film a Yoga class, which was already used even before this it arrived on the market. It shows how unscrupulous the person trying to get the patent is, unfortunately by trying to "hostage" the way Yoga is taught online/video/dvd.

Hope many more people cancel with YogaGlo!!!!!

I was reading that and mentally thinking of the videos I do that would violate this. It's ridiculous. It's almost as dumb as Apple patenting the rectangle. I mean, come on, people.

"YogaGlo also allegedly sent cease and desist letters to other websites hosting yoga instruction videos. According to a post on YogaInternational.com, “This same company insisted that a teacher from a small yoga studio in Canada…remove it from the charity site because her video was in violation of the patent they were pursuing…They threatened to pursue legal action against her if the class wasn’t pulled of the site.”

"Besides YogaInternational.com, websites that host online yoga classes that used a similar filming technique include Kripalu.org and YogaVibes.com"

Oh, man ... I did not renew with myyogaonline, and I ceased to purchase yoga videos just in time ... if THIS is what is going to happen to the more popular ways to access yoga instruction, WHO NEEDS IT (throwing up my hands in despair) ...
