    I honestly can't see them winning this, each of those companies has enough money to a small firm tied up in tape in the glacial court system for years. I don't get why they haven't gone after apple, if from the article you imply they could also be infringing, surely apple is a smaller fruit than Intel.

    Sure, Apple may be smaller, but have you seen Apple's most recent reports and the billions they're making? They'd easily be able to tie them up in the legal system for an indefinite amount of time.

    this is making news writers job easy standard patent claim fill in the blanks. Every small company ever must be scraping through every patent they've ever had in the desperate attempt to make a quick buck.

    ___________is suing __________ and ____________ over a patent detailing ________________________________ they have requested the courts order __________________

    how can they think they are gonna win...... whenever someone sues this many BIG companies, its gonna b a nightmare for them. Even if they do win surely by allowing these companies to be sued the judge is setting a precedant for others.

    By the powers vested in me by the readers of the daily star, I pronounce Implicit Networks a patent troll.

    What do we do with patent trolls?... Burn them!!!

    In a wicker man?.. OH YES!!!



    Ouch, my head hurts!

    I'm pretty sure people were doing this before 1999 (patent filing date) so I would go with prior art.

    imo these shenanigans are absolute jokes. However surely these massive companies actually check they aren't infringing patents b4 proceeding with production?

    they should just have them assinated. I sure they can afford it.
    Of course if they do that, then I expect to be compensated for my idea.
