Patent Demons

Visto Corp. of Redwood Shores, Calif., said Monday that it had won an infringement case against Seven Networks, also of California, and is now targeting RIM for infringing four patents, including three involved in the Seven action.

CBC News: RIM rejects patent-infringement allegations

I worked for Seven Networks on that lawsuit and the outcome makes me sad, angry and nauseous at the same time. Not that I was a deciding factor (highly unlikely) and I won't divulge any details about the suit (First rule of law club: don't talk about law club).

But I'm pretty sure I can say this: I was ritually abused deposed for 7 1/2 hours in the Devil's Lair by Satan himself. And two of his minions (some people call them "attorneys"). And a stenographer. And a videographer. But they weren't full time Satanists, they were just day laborers in the Devil's Army. The Devil's Lair is situated, surprisingly, in a lovely office park in Palo Alto. Being Satan pays well.

Yeah, I'm making with the ha ha, but really I believe these guys are tools of evil. Or just tools. Whatever.
