NTP Have a web site?
 
Anyone know?

Can't find anything on them other than a reference in Wiki & articles related to NTP/Rim legal issues.

I doubt it.... I don't really think it's a company.... I beleive that they have a name just to be able to have the patent on what they have

Nope, just a nothing holding company. They purchase patents (paperwork) wait 10-15 yrs. till someone infringes, then sue! great business model don't ya think?

Actually there were founded by the late inventor Thomas Campana, who held the patents that are now in dispute. He held many patents (and actually made some inventions) but died before he could see how NTP and RIMM are behaving today.

I would make some snide jokes about NTP's web site, but then some lawyer would sue me.

They could only sue if they previously held said jokes for the last 10-15 years and waited for someone else to make fun of them......

I don't care who you are, that's funny.

I considered making jokes about patent law and its abusers several years ago.

I demand that either this thread be closed or that juwaack68 pay me royalties for each view of the thread going forward.

Sorry, but my workaround is to call it a 'funny' instead of a 'joke', so you can't sue me. ;-)

LOL - Thanks Everyone
 
The funny thing is that in this day & age a company holding technology patents has no web site - every 3rd grader has one...

Or maybe that's just sad.

I guess, what should we expect from bottom feeders.

Ciao

More than likely.

Halfway off topic:

You know the difference between a dead dog on the the road and a dead lawyer?


Dead dog has skid marks in front of it.
