LXer: Newegg’s chief counsel testifies: 30 infringement claims in last 8 years alone

Published at LXer:

MARSHALL,TX—"Imagine you're sitting at home minding your own business," said Newegg lawyer Kent Baldauf in opening statements earlier this week. "Someone knocks on your door and tells you—or demands from you—millions of dollars for a service that you're already paying someone else for."Imagine the service is cable television and that you're already paying the cable company."But this person tells you, 'We own a patent on cable TV, and you owe us too for all the years you've been watching cable TV,'" Baldauf continued. "Then you look into it, and you find out, wait a minute, this patent really doesn't cover what they say it covers. What would you do? My guess is you [would] do exactly what Newegg has done here. You would say: That's not right. I want my day in court."
