Xerox: de hacer fotocopiadoras a simplemente alimentar trolles de patentes convirtiendose en un troll santificado por la USPTO

Printer photocopier



Sumario: La compañía más conocida por (sinónimo internacionalmente con) fotocopiadoras esta ahora acumulando patentes las cuales son pasadas a trolles de patentes (desesperadamente buscando dinero) y se ha convertido en parte de un amplio problema.

La EFF (Fundación De Frontera Electrónica) explícitamente ha denunciado las patentes de software y ahora se enfrenta a una patente de software de Xerox, cuyas patentes fueron famosamente usadas contra Linux en manos de Acacia un troll de patentes conectado a Microsoft. Eso fue hace casi 9 años. Tenemos toda una categoría para Fuji Xerox, quienes tuvieron conecciones con Novell, firmando un tratado de patentes con Microsoft (implicando a Linux), AYUDANDO A mICROSOFT EXTORSIONAR OTRAS COMPAÑÍAS QUE USABAN Linux, convirtiéndose en sí misma en un masivo troll de patentes. Hoy en día Xerox es una compañía malévola. Es simplemente un parásito de patentes. No hay muchos productos actuales con el logo Xerox, pero todavía no puede ser caracterizada como una entidad-no-prácticante (hablando strictamente).



"Tenemos toda una categoría para Fuji Xerox, quienes tuvieron conecciones con Novell, firmando un tratado de patentes con Microsoft (implicando a Linux, AYUDANDO A MICROSOFT EXTORSIONAR OTRAS COMPAÑÍAS QUE USABAN Linux"€¨Para citar un artículo de ayer de la EFF, (republicado por TechDirt prontamente): €¨La patente más estúpida de este mes fue otorgada a Xerox, quien en Enero 19 de 2016 recibió una patente esencialmente en una tarjeta de circulación bibliotecaria, pero hecha electrónicamente.€¨

Hay ya cubrimiento de prensa alrededor de ella. El experto en Trolls, Sr. Joe Mullin dijo: €¨ Una vez al mes los abogados de la EFF (Fundación De Frontera Electrónica) alcanza profundamente dentro del saco de patentes frescas otorgadas por la USPTO. Entonces sacan una de las más oscuras, tristes, obviamente dolorosa, que nunca debió sido otorgada y sujetada a escrutinio publico.

€¨Este mes el abogado de la EFF Vera Ranieri seleccionó un grupo questionable de patentes de Xerox y las expuso a la luz de Enero. US Patente No. 9,240,000 titulada €¨Red Social para habilitar el Compartimiento Físico de Documentos,€¨ se resumen en un sistema de compartir documentos online. Parece exactamente la clase de patente que nunca debio haber pasado por el sistema, considerando las nuevas guías puestas en orden como resultado de la decisión de la Corte Suprema Alice Corp. v. CLS.

"No sólo los troles tienen la culpa. El problema inherente, núclear aquí son las patentes de software."El significado de Alice es correctamente resaltado y debería ser notado que las patentes de Xerox TIENEN UNA TENDENCIA A PASAR DE MANOS Y TERMINAR COMO ARMA EN LAS MANOS DE LOS TROLLES DE PATENTES. No sólo los troles tienen la culpa. El problema inherente, núclear aquí son las patentes de software.

“Ford [...] se ha unido a RPX,” dice este nuevo artículo de los maximálistas, y han €¨tomado una licencia con la vil Intelectual Ventures,€¨ que es la más grande proxy/satelite de patentes de Microsoft (hay más y Intelectual Ventures ha atacado Linux con patentes hasta reciéntemente el año pasado). RPX es un ejemplo de patentes compartidas por grandes compañías que actuan como trolles de patentes, mientras que los últimos son trolles de patentes a granel (Intelectual Ventures posee miles de entidades satelites €´enforcers€´ que llevan compañías a corte si ellas no obedecen al Don de la Mafia, el tristemente célebre Natah Myhrvold).

Para citar al sitio solventado por la OEP:

Mientras GM se mantiene alejado del mercado de patentes, parece que el plan para el Sidecar se pueda tornar más comprometido cone llas. Me contacté con el Gerente General Sunil Paul quien dijo que el no era capaz de hablar públicamente acerca de la estrategia de la compañíá más allá de lo que es público. Asi que en vez de ello, pregunté a un par de expertos en licensias como ellos se aproximarían para hacer dinereo del la patente 6356838 y cualquier patente futura. Su respuesta fue, €¨si, buena suerte con ello€¨; y sólo hubo una razón - Alice.



El caso Alice y la pregunta de patentabilidad en la USPTO (Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de los Estados Unidos) después del ruling de 2014 en Alice será nuestra materia en el próximo artículo.
