CueCat Patent Granted, Finally

Whafro Bringing Back Memories (184 comments)

I remember being the first to publish the basic decoder for the CueCat... got a nice little writeup in Wired, which led to a nice little writeup from a Kenyon & Kenyon lawyer in the form of a C&D.

Highlight of my sophomore year in HS: http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=7222&cid=835493

Their patent claim is interesting -- launch a web browser when an item is scanned. Sounds like it shouldn't meet the non-trivial requirement to me, but I'm not in IP law anymore...
