RTI Appeals To The Supremes

A nice report at arstechnica about the NPE, Rates Technology Inc., who has recently filed an appeal of an adverse decision to the Supreme Court. Unlike most NPE’s RTI only has two patents it is trying to enforce, but it has been quite successful. See this report for good information about RTI, its agreement with Best Buy and the litigation: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2012/10/pioneering-patent-troll-seeks-the-supreme-courts-ear-plus-a-cool-12-million/

Also, here is a link to the Fed Circuit’s decision (with lots of good Lear analysis and discussion):http://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-2nd-circuit/1605675.html
