Twitter getting sued for famous people

Part of Twitter’s success is that fans can connect with famous people, like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, however most of them use it as another marketing source people like Ashton Kutcher, P Diddy, and 50 cent have gave it tons of promotion. Well today a company called VS Technologies is apparently suing Twitter for stealing a a patent allowing people to connect with famous people in a similar manner (Yes we are serious). Patent No. 6,408,309 which states:

As it pertains to this lawsuit, very generally speaking, the ’309 Patent discloses methods and systems for creating interactive, virtual communities of people in various fields of endeavor wherein each community member has an interactive, personal profile containing information about that member.

For someone currently unknown reason the company was awarded the patent back in 2002, since the only site I could find stated VS Technologies is a “leading IT firm” it seems that this company has completely wasted their “invention” and is just another YAPT (Yet another Patent troll). VS Technologies is demanding damages be paid which should, another quote from the patent:

for Defendant’s infringement, which by law cannot be less than would constitute a reasonable royalty for the use of the patented technology, together with interest and costs as fixed by this Court.

Good Luck with that one. We have contacted Twitter for more information but they are yet to respond.

    I’m sorry for the off-topic question but could you please tell me where to get the design you are using? I’d like to find the same website template or perhaps a similar one. Can you perhaps say who made it?

    I guess I failed here. I’m not in the top ten and, also, this comment is not very interesting. Or funny. But I can be. Sometimes. Really.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
