@Brad Something must be done about this, major companies steal innovations developed by small companies and they don`t care about this at all. My uncle filled recently a trademark infringement and hopefully he will manage to prove the other company stole his idea. The sales of his company are decreasing and hopefully his small software company won`t go into bankruptcy.

Well at some point you have to feel bad for the little guys. How is anyone supposed to start a technology based company if the 'big boys' can sweep in and steal your innovations whenever they feel like it? Its very important in this area to patent ideas (see for example: ) and protect your intellectual property rights. In other areas (like software), I don't care for it as much.

Is this technology news - or an attempt by the company to pump up their stock price? It reminds me of the companies that issue a press release every time they file a patent application. WINNING a lawsuit or a patent award is news (anyone can file a case).

I think these days technology lawyers are more busy than anyone else. The courts are busy dealing with technology cases rather than than the usual civil or criminal cases.
