Oh Wow breaking news - It's a great freaking day for the EFF :)
U.S. Patent Office Rejects All Ninety Five NeoMedia Patent Claims
Hey Streetstylz and all you other Neomedia flunkies - when you read this post think of me :)
This is a really big deal - 95 out of 95 patent claims all rejected, wow this is too cool and has put a smile on my face for the whole weekend.
Wonder what Ogilvy (and others) are thinking backing the wrong 'indirect' technology now. When Neomedia go bankrupt or are countersued out of existince all those marketing campaigns will cease to work and all the time and effort invested will be wasted.
Direct connect 'license free' QR codes are the way to go - paying license fees for a technology that Denso opensourced and made free in the 1990's is just dumb.
