Gutting a Patent Claim by Claim

Dec 31, 2007

Tom Evslin picked up my challenge to help invalidate the proposed patent in my post Have You Ever Coded a Progress Bar?  Tom has prior art going back to 1987 from a program he wrote called Desktop Express (Dow Jones Software). 



He writes his thoughts and how he’s nailed 5 of the 20 claims in his post Patent Absurdity – A Possible Cure.  Tom got on the Peer-to-Patent site and entered a detailed challenge to five of the claims

Thanks Tom!  Anyone else game to play?
