    No Subject Given

    fact that BT is actually suing a company about it shows the level of pure stupidity the company has.
    Surely if you had the patent for the hyperlink, as a company you would be stupid (and neglecting your shareholders) if you did *not* collect royalty payments for every use of it. Don't blame BT, blame your patent system that allows BT to get away with this.
    Do they actually expect every ISP in the world to pay them for their hyperlinks?
    Yes. The law is the law.

    BT is using Kenyon & Kenyon, the lawyers best known for their C&D letters sent to various CueCat hack sites. As far as I know, they never followed through on any threats against any CueCat decoders.
