    If they beat these three, It'll be huge. The patent was applied for 2001 and granted in 2008.

    wow, if this actually happens it will be incredible. I am sure it won't go through though.

    Some companies are trying to make money from patents, suing other companies for funny things... But I doubt that they will earn something from this.

    ps. the words in this post are patented. You use any of these words in your posts and I sue you after 7 years. :p

    This case is perfect example for misuse of Patent by the patent owner

    They won't get sued, Cygnus will back out after being paid off by them out of court.

    This just opens the door for more lawsuits. I believe the big three will bury them with lawyer fees alone.
