This entire lawsuit is complete rubbish beacause in the lawsuit PDF it says they're suing over infractions caused by a game called 'Mindcraft'. Since Mojang have never released a games called Mindcraft, Uniloc therefore doesn't have a case. So the moral is: always spellcheck official court documents!
That's the thing, They did! If you observe a spell check of Minecraft, one of the options I have seen before is "Mindcraft".
Even though this entire thing is a load of crap. You do have to know and respect that as fans, we are not allowed into the courtroom. We can hope and cheer, but not assist.
That does raise a thought, what if the jury has people who play Minecraft?
Uniloc is a joke, this lawsuit won't go anywhere at all. They even mispelled the name of the video game that they referenced, 'Mindcraft'. Such obvious errors will not go unnoticed in court, if this advances further.
GD so many people are typo grammar nazi's, we get it, you caught a mistake.
HOW ABOUT THE FACT THAT THE PATENT THEY ARE SUING OVER IS EXPIRED, YOU MISSED THIS BECAUSE YOU WERE ALL BUSY LOOKING FOR TYPOS.
besides typos make little to no difference in a court room, especially when you put a not limited to statement before hand.
methinks they probably reinstated the patent with a "like new" innovation giving them a surplus ten years or so, but since they referenced Ric's ( or whoever had to pen the sig) patent this case might get tossed for a better more well thought out case.
And really, it takes three seconds to realize that Ric left the company because he made his money already, he sold the company on a patenting technique that would open the door LATER on for more sue cases.
He may not be here today to guide the company, but he set the foundation of how they are going to pull money out of the economy for the next twenty years.
so tell me again why Ric Rich-tard-son is not the face of evil? He is literally trying to con you all into believing none of this idea even presented itself to his mindset while being in the company.
he left before more of the cases went to court why?
Uniloc cuts some profits from the cases and throws it into an account for awhile, or an investing hedge fund, soon the investments go sour, the patent expires, come to find out the investing company has to charge interest on their loaned money, but guess who's firm gets the return? Uniloc writes it all off as a loss, and even gets some fringe benefits from it.
This company is located down the street from me............
They have locally sued companies for ******** reasons
before and they are doing it again.... I should walk down the
street and falcon punch them
"Mindcraft"? Did someone make a typo? or did Uniloc's lawyers not do their proper research for the correct copywrited spelling of said accused infringing property? Seriously, at least get the name right.
Can't someone counter-sue/sue a company for falsely suing a company? Especially to this magnitude? Isn't this like...against the law or something? We should all get together and sue Uniloc for just being a money-hungry, falsely-suing, idiots. They're not even that big of a company. They somehow got away with patening something that would literally pretty much make it so no one can program, so that only they can be the programmers. Isn't it a crime to make a law so that only you can be the big business?
Yes, i guess they would be a "Monopoly" or a Trust which, was outlawed quite a long time ago.
Also, this patent is for license checking using a SMART CARD. NOT. A. SERVER. AND. LOGIN.DUH!
