      If this guy loses, he should be forced to pay ALL legal fees incurred by everyone he tries to sue.
      Well, there it is.

        I agree with Skep.

        However, correct me if I am wrong, but companies cash in on patents which they file *after* the technology is in use?

        Other patent issues at the moment include the DNA research company which has patented a DNA string they found, resulting in treatment not being available to breast cancer suffers as the price has been inflated by 1000's of dollars. Any hospital/surgery/practice which uses the patented treatment will be sued for infringment. This shouldn't be allowed to happen IMO - its a lot worse that trying to cash in on on-line stores.

          And to add to the DNA thing, I read recently that some biologist was trying to encode a DNA sequence into an mp3 file. That way he can copyright it until 90 years after his death (compared to the 20 years for patents).
          Well, there it is.

            Seems like another scam artist/get-rich-quick scheme.

                I believe this will be found to be an overly broad patent and disqualified from licensing fees. Especially considering the issue date. The companies secondary patent includes all sales done over video or telephone mediums which includes every company in the world that does sales.

                Both are overly broad and some restructuring needs to be put into place with Patent laws. This is clearly an example of technology outpacing regulation.

                    There's no way this PANIP company will win, so they better save up money to pay the costs of all the people they are suing.

                      Just one more example of why a loser-pays system would be a very good thing.

                        Doesn't the US legal system do that? I know that in Australia, the loser in a court case pays the legal costs of both loser AND winner.

                          No.... The defendant would have to countersue for legal costs. However both lawsuits would proceed in the same hearing and at the same time.
