Also - "FILED FOR THAT PATENT PRIOR TO HIS JOINING THE EFFORT TO WORK FOR
IT"...

So, did he get a patent on an idea, then hired a programmer to actually develop
it.

If so, then I thought you could only patent "inventions"... and can
not patent an idea before you have any work done to "invent" a working
device that is supposed to be what is patented (but, only if it is not math, or
not-obvious)?

Apple v. Samsung Voir Dire Reveals Broken Promises (Docket 1979-1993) ~pj

At the time I was very surprised this guy was left on the Jury. I would have
thought the Judge would have dismissed him and if not one of the parties would
have use a peremptory challenge. Reading the Voir Dire he stick out like a sore
thumb.

Patent pending?
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, September 24 2012 @ 04:30 PM EDT
"And in 2008 I filed a follow-on patent in more detail and that is
currently pending."

Well, that explains how the invalidity was ignored. Someone who is waiting for
a patent to issue is not likely to see any patent as invalid.
