Dan Bricklin on Patent Litigation
Dan Bricklin was recently an expert witness in the Hyperion vs. Outlooksoft case that was tried in the US District Court in Marshall, TX. Outlooksoft (the defendant) won – and Dan’s testimony was critical to invalidating the Hyperion patent.
Dan has two excellent essays up about this – his experience in the case and his general thoughts on Patent Litigation circa 2006. Dan is a remarkably clear thinker and excellent writer (as well as general software wizard and hugely nice guy) – if you are interested in software patents, these two essays are a must read.
