As Google Voice Opens For All... It's Hit With Patent Infringement Claims | Techdirt
Yea, I saw that. But, if there's anyone with the time, money, and lawyers to fight the case (assuming that the case is meritless), it's Google. What I mean is, if the case has the ability to be won, it's them.
I swear, we need to just pluck everyone, i mean EVERYONE, judges, congress, president, senate, pluck them ALL out, and start over.
This has nothing to do with Congress or the President. It's the patent office that is the problem. It's the same reason why Apple's multitouch patent was granted. The people in that division are quite idiots. If the person who wrote the article was able to easily find something in 2006 that was basically what the patent stated in 2007, then how come the person who approves patents accepted it?
Where I'm finding fault is how do these things even make it to trial?
Tapatalk. Samsung Moment. Yep.
Congress and the President do pass and approve the laws that the patent office must follow... right?
pretty sure since google (grand central) was using the technology before the patent was ever applied for there isnt a chance in the world anything is really going to come of this.
The system just sucks.......
Well yes but it doesn't actually deal with approving what patents are accepted. That is based solely on the patent approver (I don't know what their technical name is).
A few companies have had "ring blast" prior to 2006 (Vonage, Cisco)...or is it the manner in which it is implemented that is in question?
Because there could be a patent infringement, it happens. It's the duty of the court to say "we'll look over their fairly and let both sides present their argument" as opposed to just telling one to **** off. Yea, there are a lot of frivolous lawsuits, but sometimes these suits turn out to be right.
