While the Lodsys saga with Apple and its developers drudges on, another company has decided to join in the patent troll party. This time, it’s an Indian-based company by the name of Kootol, and this time, they’re not just going after the little guys.
FOSSPatents is reporting that Kootol has distributed a press release announcing that it has sent “notices” to a long list of companies (large and small) regarding their use of Kootol’s Intellectual Property. The IP in question involves social “feeds” like you’d find in Twitter or Facebook… Read More
