Comment: How many of these patents are contested? (Score 1) 136

by JohanV (#23161556) Attached to: 80% of MS Server Protocols Are Unpatented
Looking through the list I wonder how many of these patents have been contested and/or how many of these patent applications should be rejected. For instance, under the "Web Browser Federated Sign-On Protocol" Microsoft lists patent applications 2005-0223217-A1 and 2006-0112422-A1. There exists prior art for 2005-0223217-A1 claim 14 and further in A-Select and I think for the rest of the claims in Shibboleth. I would have to study 2006-0112422-A1 more in detail, but it looks like about half of the claims there also have prior art in those systems.

Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
