Got to love NewEgg. Good comments in this thread as well - very thought-provoking. Thanks!

Good for NewEgg, but the problem is patent reform. We need it in a big way. Article 1, section 8 of the US Constitution:

The Congress shall have power...To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;

The entire purpose of patents is to promote the progress of science and useful arts. Patent trolling has no place in that promotion, nor do patents that last beyond a decade, nor does allowing patent holders to charge exorbitant amounts for use of said patent. Very frustrating.

You're their reason for existence
They use you to finance the state
The words you shout with such conviction
Is it the only way to express your hate?

The main piece of prior art used at the appeals trial was the CompuServe Mall, and Newegg's lawyers, led on appeal by Ed Reines of Weil Gotshal, argued that system hit each and every patent claim in Soverain's patents.

At district court, the judge hadn't even let those invalidity arguments go to the jury, stating there wasn't "sufficient testimony" on obviousness, and that it would be "very confusing" to them.

So why the FUCK is that fucker of a judge still employed, rather than in jail? Because he's obviously taking handouts to bury the truth, the fucking asshole.

Good job, Newegg!
