'WordLogic (patent troll) claims it has the rights of the concept of
predictive text writing and went after the Wikimedia foundation.
WordLogic offered a "discounted, lump sum fee of $30,000 in exchange
for a paid-up one-time license," an easy win they thought, but
Wikimedia fought back. "Wikimedia notes that (1) WordLogic's patents
are invalid due to prior art, (2) that they are invalid for not
covering patentable subject matter, and (3) that anyway, it doesn't
even infringe on the patents if they were valid," reports Techdirt.
Now we are waiting to see what will happen. Will the patent troll
desist, or will it push forward?'
