Update: Fighting for Patent Reform Continues
I was the defendant in this ridiculous case. I'm proud to be the one responsible for overturning these weak patents that were used against so many photographers.

This case has become the poster child of what's wrong with our patent system. I have been approached by Application Developer Alliance and United for Patent Reform, and I'm joining the lobbying efforts of those two groups. As part of that coordinated effort, I have written my congressmen (again), and written an Op-Ed piece that will run in Connecticut newspapers next week. will be running pro-patent-reform ads using my name and story.

The House Judiciary Committee has requested my testimony as well. I've filmed a video which will be watched by members of Congress in the near future. Finally, a meeting is being planned between myself and Senator Blumenthal. I hope some good will come of all this so other photographers do not suffer what I had to endure.

If you haven't donated, PLEASE consider making a small donation at (external link). This cost $100,000 to defend and to correct a wrong in our industry. We're still reeling from those expenses. Won't you help?

Thank goodness that in the end, our legal system worked. From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you for your support as we stood up for what's right!

This is wonderful news. I can't wait to see what Mr. Wolf has to say in this thread now. My hunch is nothing...

As it turns out (and not surprisingly) he didn't come back to say "yup, sorry, I was wrong, this really was obvious. my bad."

Patent trolls suck. I'll donate.

Have donated even though the patent was not enforceable in Australia.
I would urge you to donate as a way of saying thank-you for their courage to take on this ridiculous patent.
