CMU's name was used in Mean Girls 2 (appropriate?). I wonder how much they were paid for that.

Peoples intelectual property should be respected and paid to use. If willfull stealling is proven. Creaters wronged and that took time to ask for payment and blown off should compensated. The stealing party should be forced to pay extra damages also for court cost above infringment amount. Stealing is thievery, period, and needs too be have enforcment means.

I have glanced through the patents. They are about calculating the branch metric in viterbi decoding. Didnt understand the exact advantage of the proposed system. But having worked in similar areas(Wireless PHY design) I can confidently say, there are atleast a 100 other ways of doing the same thing. Not something very unique IMO. Most of the maths you see in that patent is from textbook and not invented by CMU. http://www.google.com/patents?id=SS8JAAAAEBAJ&printsec=abstract&zoom=4#v=onepage&q&f=false http://www.google.com/patents?id=KKQLAAAAEBAJ&printsec=abstract&zoom=4#v=onepage&q&f=false

"I suspect the Jury might consist of total idiots". The juries are required to be idiot. They have to be regular people without tech knowledge to cause biases. That is the requirement of the US law system. We can imagine the juries for such patent cases are mostly local old ladies and soccer moms. The keywords are "They should not have any STEM background."

Lots of knee jerk speeches without much substance here. Has anyone even looked at the patent involved? This isn't some overly broad patent but a very specific patent with detailed mathematical algorithms. Having known someone who claimed that a certain company starting with M partnered with his company then stole all the IP and built it themselves, resulting in many lawsuits he went broke trying to right the wrongs, I wouldn't be so quick to fly off at the handle and make gross generalizations about patents in this case.

Selinz, wilful infringement means learning a competitors invention and deliberatly copying it, other than plain infringement, which means coming up with a similar idea independently later in the day. Both cases are infringement, of course, but for wilful infringement you can claim triple damages.

Yeah, I have immediately checked Marvel stock when I last saw the news, there was no reaction in the stock market! I think common investors may not even knew about this case or don't care about it. I think the only law suits people care about is from Apple :)

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
