Android developer being sued by Cequint

SpiceInvaders (1179555) writes "The developer of the City Caller ID application for Android is being sued by Ceguint. Apparently "they have a patent on displaying a city name with state on a LCD screen with a limited processor." Doesn't this cover practically every cordless phone? Wonder if their case goes away if you run the application on a core-i7 phone equipped with a OLED screen instead?"

Software Patents Stifle Innovation (1)

I live in the UK and still feel the effects of US software patents.

If a company is not planning/investing in their patents, they should lose the right to enforce them.
