Dotcom is going to end up in jail or penniless after some corporate attorney destroys him court.  If you read through his history he had a trail of shady business dealings in Europe that lead to his relocation to New Zealand.  The only reason he escaped the fallout from MegaUpload was the FBI got stupid and went all stormtrooper on him.  Give him a year or two and some law enforcement agency will grab him for his new shiat.

Oh my....a lawyers firm would happily take on a winning case like this, the patent is in place and has already been used billions of times Im sure, without a doubt they owe him money for using his patent.

Are you implying that the United States is not willing to sell its military out to the highest bidder?

Which is only relevant if Google's authentication uses his method.

You can't patent an operating system and then sue anyone else who creates an OS.

Wouldn't he have had to try to defend the patent well before now for any lawsuit to really have legs, if people have been using his tech for as long as he claims?

Actually that's the way patent law currently works. If an OS were first created today somebody would file a patent for "software that interfaces between a user and hardware". Or some other horseshiat. See: apple trying to patent rounded corners
 
2013-05-23 02:46:21 PM  
SecurIDs were being sold in 1987, with the express purpose of allowing 2 factor authentication with a separate physical device.

So, good luck with that lawsuit, fatso.

Doesn't he need to enforce or due legal process against anyone who infringes on his patents or he loses them?

Like trademarks; you need to do due diligence when you know someone is infringing on it otherwise you lose it?
 
2013-05-23 06:51:58 PM  
On this one, he is really just pointing out that he did not enforce this priority in the past because he doesn't think such things should be enforced. He is doing it to gain more public sympathy, which maay or may not work, but he is pretty much not in any way going to patent-troll anyone ever. For all his faults that isnt one of them.
