More Injustice in EDA - Arrow Electronics Suing Grad Student using New York Law Firm

NO RATINGS
Big Company Arrow Electronics together with Transim is trying to claim rights to any web based circuit simulation, and they are now starting to sue small time developers for creating modern new circuit design systems ... Spicy Schematics is one of many that exist today (ischematics.com) and Arrow has hired a big New York Law Firm to sue the grad student behind it ... Here is their patent: http://www.google.com/patents/US6530065 Here is the case someone posted online, not me: http://www.scribd.com/doc/136047028/Arrow-Electronics-et-al-v-Ischematics-com The patent is completely general and covers any circuit simulation using a client server architecture ... how could this patent have been issued?? Also why would larger EDA companies want to go after grad students? As in this post .. http://www.semiwiki.com/forum/content/2326-more-injustice-eda-lawsuits.html There are many companies out there offerring this service, so why go after the grad student? .. it is obvious, they want to start a precedent by going after the smallest company out there ... If Transim can sue simply on the base of having a client server architecture combined with circuit design in their patent, then what is the result? ,... noone else can create circuit designs systems for the web? Transim does not even have a system like Spicy ... This is unbelievable and would surely stifle innovation ... on the other hand, there are quite a few companies offering cloud based circuit simulation, so innovation is out there, I suppose Transim has a long line of victims in their grand plan
