My island neighbor (!) Paul Allen is definitely up to something, and money is the obvious first evident goal of his new patent lawsuit action.
There is probably more to it, and some comments from these last days refer to the time of the lawsuit, to try to identify personal reasons or link to a possible memento Paul would be building to himself.
Today analysis from Wade gets deeper in the merits of the alleged patent infringements, but the main impression is that these patents are so wide that it’s like Paul’s Interval Research company “invented” the web and more…
Publicity? Stirring the marketplace? We’ll see.
