    Isn't there some type of time limitation? Why couldn't Worlds Inc. sue WoW in 2004 or EQ in 99?

    In fact, what is Worlds Inc. known for? lol. Have they done anything?

    Supposedly they "pioneered" the client server architecture or so they claim. Their claim is soo vague it's a wonder how they even managed to get their "patent" accepted by the US Patent Office. Basically their claim is they "pionneered" the "idea" of being able to display objects and text in an virtual space. Like the above poster said they claim they invented how to walk... so metaphorically speaking they claim the patent to "walking" and any kind of footware since invented. It's totally bullshit.

    We should sue them. For they did not invent, nor utilize their sais technology.

    Yet, said technology was in use by many companies before they ever received their patent. Since it was not filed in good faith, it is not valid.
