Patent Fight Gets Interesting

I wrote a Cup-a-Joe blog for our E-newsletter earlier this week regarding patent trolls and the havoc they could have/are levying on our industry.  One of the key issues I touched upon — and many in the industry have questioned — is the role that our technology suppliers should be playing.

That question was answered in spades this past Thursday May 22) when it was announced that Agfa, Kodak, and Heidelberg jointly filed for inter-partes review with the US Patent Office.  This is a critical move in battling the Trolls and their attack on the industry.

Kudos to Kodak, Agfa, and Heidelberg!  It wasn’t an easy decision — but it was the right one.
