Now you are dismissing all these links I provide, because they are Sun related. Do you think that is unbelievable that IBM would patent troll, just as described? Do you think it is unbelievable that IBM would patent troll on a silly patent as this?
"...The [IBM ]chief blue suit orchestrated the presentation of the seven patents IBM claimed were infringed [by Sun], the most prominent of which was IBM's notorious "fat lines" patent:To turn a thin line on a computer screen into a broad line, you go up and down an equal distance from the ends of the thin line and then connect the four points. You probably learned this technique for turning a line into a rectangle in seventh-grade geometry, and, doubtless, you believe it was devised by Euclid or some such 3,000-year-old thinker..."
Do you really think this story could not happen? IBM would never behave like this? Or... could maybe this story happened? IBM does indeed abuse their patents?
There are many stories about IBM abusing patents. One example, Mainframe division. IBM has sued other numerous times to sustain their monopoly on Mainframes, for instance the word "FUD" comes from IBM FUDing other companies. Without IBM, no "FUD" word:
You know, all these stories are written by IBMs victims; company AAA, company BBB, company CCC. etc. It must be very convenient to dismiss all of these stories because "AAA got sued by IBM, what side of the story do you think he is going to take?". is this really your reason to dismiss all these horrendous stories about patent abuse? Are you serious, or are you trolling?
"Never trust the defender, because he will try to tell bad stories about the aggressor!" - or? Normally, one should listen to both sides, but you are saying "only listen to IBM side". Some would call this... slightly biased, yes?
