Typically a nonsense alleged patent infrigment, no other goal then to grab some easy $
If I held a legit patent I would protect it.What would you do if you held one?
My gosh pugmug! I tried to read those two patents and couldn't understand a thing.
But yeah, if they are legit, I'd try to protect them.
They're legit (i.e. were issued), the question is whether they can survive a challenge, say via prior art....
they can survive a challenge because in the end there will be a buyout. Which is the sole purpose of half the patents obtained each year.

Nah trjam they arnt worried cause they are all "Comfortably Numb"
I wonder if procreation has been patented yet? The holder of that patent would essentially own all life. I'll bet the US Patent Office would grant the patent, too.
I notice in the link it states the US media have branded the company suing for infringement as a "patent troll".
Couple of years ago, a guy in australia was issued the innovation patent for a "circular transportation facilitation device". In a plain text, he got patent for wheel I am not kidding.
I wonder if he gets any royalties for every tire sold?
Well, you can sue anyone for anything in US.
If that isn't a joke, then there is someone in the office whose's IQ is the number described by that invention.
It isn't Patent number is some post above
That patent was filed because the person who filed it was a lawyer who wanted to prove that the innovations patenting process in Australia was flawed and that there wasn't any real inspection going on into the patents claims..........
well he sure as well was right, lol any idiot that let him create a patent for the wheel deserves to be fired.
I can't believe that the Australian Government would actually grant someone a patent for the invention of the wheel but here is the proof.....
Link to .pdf files explaining the patent for the wheel (#AU2001100012A) including sketches -
Proposed Application - http://www.fpdwl.at/forum//attachment.php?attachmentid=3193&sid=85448734d36158fc0fe20f97ba0da1d0
Granted Patent - http://www.hl7.org.au/docs/Australian Patent 2001100012.pdf
(Both .pdfs are the same apart from the second one stating that it has been granted by the patent office)
At least we now know who gets credit for inventing the wheel. Now to get that fire thing resolved.
LOL SourMilk out
Well it probably was new for Australia(lol)
Good laugh over here. The wheel was reinvented for real!
