I did read the patents. You came up with nothing that others didn't- which is why everyone in your eyes in "infringing" on your patent without reading them or even being aware they exist. You were just the first one to run to the patent office and try and patent an obvious idea. Do you really believe all the people you are trying to sue read your patents and decided they had to do that, or came up with it on their own?
Here is my take on one of your patents minus the lawyer speak.
A process providing event
photographs of a sporting event for
inspection, selection and distribution
via a computer network, comprising
the steps of:
taking photographs of at least one
participant of a sporting event along
at least one point of a course or field
I take pictures of people at a sporting event.
associating identifying data with each
photograph taken, wherein the
identifying data is selected from at
least one of: a number corresponding
to a number worn by a participant, a
participant’s name, a code acquired
from a component worn by a
participant, and a date and time,
including hour and minute the
photograph was taken;
informing the sporting participants of
the identifying data;
I use metadata to stamp the date/time and/or bib number/name of the runner in the pictures I took.
transferring the photographs to a
computer network server;
cataloging each of the photographs in
a Web-site server according to the
I create simple database to include the metadata and the pictures on my web server.
accessing the server at a location
other than the sporting event and
searching for a photograph of a
particular sporting event participant
utilizing the identifying data; and
displaying the photograph of the
sporting event participant for
inspection and ordering.
I display the pictures with a search box for the metadata on a website so people can view and order them.
You can read the article at PetaPixel- pretty good explanation of the facts from an outside third party. They agree with my take on the patents, as well.
And the EFF article as well.
