Dialing It In

Cyberfone sued major media companies in this country, asserting 8,019,060, which was granted post-Bilski. The simple fact is that a patent troll can't sue the TV media industry and expect to get away with it. The courts won't have it, however they have to corrupt case law. The district court buried the patent under § 101 without even bothering to construe the claims. The CAFC readily concurred. The claims went to computerized transaction manipulations. However useful, abstract enough.
