Sprint was found culpable of infringing on two patents held by Prism Technologies. The patents in question pertain to accessing protected computer resources and were used by Sprint in its "Simply Everything" and "Everything Data" plans, according to Prism. Sprint was ordered to pay a fine of $30 million. Sprint rejects the decision and said it will appeal. "We believe the evidence is clear that Sprint does not infringe the patent. Sprint plans to pursue post-trial motions," said Roni Singleton, a spokeswoman for Sprint, in a statement provided to RCR Wireless. Prism has similar cases pending against T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, and U.S. Cellular.

Am I the only one that bothers to actually read patents?

Sprint violated patent number 8,287,155?

"Method of and device for attracting aquatic life forms using bubble and sound formation in an aquatic environment"?

I knew something was slowing down their network, its underwater battery powered bubble makers. I'll leave the relative stupidity of that patent out of this, but everyone is using this patent number in articles everywhere.

Its obviously not the right one, since the troll's, I mean Plaintiffs other "patent" 8,127,345 is a total BS drown-the-approver-with-seventy-pages-of-high ly-technical-reference for a non-innovative non-unique way of logging into a secured system through a network.

But some companies rolled over and ponied up the extortion money, so now everyone has to, or...
