OnLive Claims Cloud Gaming Patent

Cloud gaming service OnLive is claiming a patent they were awarded last week is fundamental to cloud-based gaming, reports VentureBeat. In an apparent shot across the bows of rivals like Gaikai, OnLive CEO Steve Perlman cites U.S. patent No. 7,849,491, filed in 2002, which covers "Apparatus and method for wireless video gaming." While Perlman did not comment on whether he would be suing his competitors, they say he is trying to work out agreements with them, noting that he has never sued anyone for patent infringement, in spite of personal ownership of over 100 patents. They also say OnLive now anticipates receiving additional related patents from patent offices around the world.

Big Pharm knows that you can use that stuff to help with medical problems and wants to do everything in its power to try and make sure you can't get your hands on it so you can use their solutions instead.

Your economic views are painfully simplistic. It's like you think we're the way we are because people are evil.

Most people aren't evil. But big corporations are. They answer to one thing and one thing only. The almighty dollar.

I agree with everything you've said, but damn.. that Beamer guy has some serious anger issues! Went all crazy, blasting someone who understands the system better than he does.. it's not perfect, and that was my point. lol

For the sake of me being too lazy to quote him... i'll answer some of his questions.

War on Drugs = Capitalism because of how much it costs. It keeps people employed, it keeps the drug dealers employed. Ask the drug dealers if they would like to see Cannabis legalized? The answer is no.

I don't have any answers on how to 'fix' what has already started.. if that were the case this would be easy. However it is true, that corporations are about one thing, and that's money.

Money has helped us get to where we are, but there are some major problems with it.. like corruption.

I don't have the answers, only the questions.
