    Time to get the patents formally invalidated, no? Or is that somehow not an option. (I did not RTFA, I’ll admit.)

    So, since the patents were invalid but they can continue their bogus claims, what could a business owner do? If this is a risk-free business for Innovatio, I don’t know why other companies cannot enter such ‘market’.

    Perhaps we need to go the other way and make Innovatio an offer they can’t refuse.

    I don’t see how they can get by with such general accusations — they should need to specify exactly what device/etc the end-user is employing that infringes on the patent.
    I assume that if one’s WIFI-hotspot/router/etc has either Broadcom or Qualcomm chips (i.e. licensed broadcom patents) that one should be able to tell them to shove off…
    My question is “What chipsets haven’t been licensed?”  Marvell? MediaTek? Quantenna? Redpine? Other?

    RICO is also used (successfully) against tobacco companies.
