+ - Laminar Research are suied for use of Google-provided code in Android app->

Nemo1024 (2818775) writes " Holding a patent does not mean that you actually did anything. It only means that you claim that you thought of something that you can sue other people for actually doing. I learned this first-hand in September 2012, when I was informed that I and a handful of other developers of Android apps were facing millions of dollars in litigation for using a copy protection technology present in virtually every Android application ever developed. In our Android app (X-Plane), we used the same copy protection Google provides to everyone that is making a game for Android! (That I know of.)

Austin Meyer has decided to fight back and need every help he can get, including signing a petition at the White House to change the paten laws so that they don't stifle innovation as much as they do now. Follow the post link for more details on the petition."
