NTP Quickly Rubs Off On Visto

from the legal-eagles dept

Just a day after licensing NTP’s push email patents, (and NTP taking a stake in the company), Visto is suing Microsoft for — yep, you guessed it — patent infringement. To be fair, though, Visto’s sued on its own before, filing similar suit against rivals Seven and Smartner, but it sounds like it might be in a similar position to NTP in regards to the Patent Office, with some of its claims being rejected in an initial review by the USPTO. What’s that saying about birds of a feather?

Re: Trend is growing

this trend of patent trolls sueing for millions/billions of dollars is getting ridiculous quick.. is there any end in site? when do you think it really began? i think software restrictive patents on common codecs/compression (divx, mp3, etc) is the first time it ever struck me as holding inovation back
