No, You Don't Have To File Patent Lawsuits
from the bogus-reasons dept
But what caught my attention was Xerox's given reason for pursuing the lawsuit:
"We believe we have no option but to file suit to properly protect our intellectual property."Sorry, but that's no reason to file a lawsuit. It's a common cliche in patent lawsuits, but it's totally bogus. Of course you have other options. There is no rule that you have to file a lawsuit to "protect" the patent. There is no "protecting" that needs to be done. This is just a blatant attempt to squeeze money out of companies who actually implemented a product where Xerox failed. That's not protecting, it's shaking down.
