    This leaves the obvious question… has being in Vancouver prevented you from being sued too?

  2. Phall Says:

    If it’s an American patent, it has nothing to do with Canada. IANAL, but as far as I know, you can’t patent a business process in Canada.

  3. Andreas Says:

    Any more details on who is behind the suit and what the patent is all about?

  4. Andy Arnott Says:


    A link to some sort of information on this is needed for me to believe it.

  5. Carlos Says:

    Since Markus did not post a link, one can easily assume that he didn’t read this anywhere but he knows about it because he was served with the lawsuit and in it it lists all other defendents.

    Yet another case of patent absurdity and the need to fix the patent system. Being in Canada does not give plentyoffish ammunity, just look at what happened to RIM (Research in Motion), Blackberry makers and NTP (patent troll). In case you haven’t read about it, all of NTP’s email patents were found illegitimate (what a surprise), yet RIM was forced to pay them more than $600 Million because of timing. i.e. the court did not want to wait for the results of a patent review.

    Being a software developer I can conservatively estimate that the vast majority of software patents are simply bogus that shouldn’t have been granted in the first place. This whole software patent thing is like an arms race, noone will win except the arms dealers, I mean lawyers in this case.

    This is a false statement that isn’t supported anywhere. “patent infringement” of what?

    After reading this article I’m really considering doing all of them. Be sure to come back to the website for something new contents.
