Legal Right, well, this is new. We know of countless copyright lawsuits being thrown about regarding BitTorrent - but what about a patent lawsuit? A company which, for now, has all the airs of a classic patent troll, has sued BitTorrent, Inc. and uTorrent, claiming the BitTorrent protocol violates some vague software patent. No connection to the mafia RIAA/MPAA/etc. has been found yet, but I won't be surprised.

Wait 'till I sue them for trademark violations. I own squiggly lines!

I own a patent on "a method that allows user determined arbitrary bidirectional communication over HTTP". So I'm going to sue anyone that has ever created dynamic Web content. Even if it is just an email feedback form. ;)
