FindTheBest.com Wins Patent Battle, Continues With War On Patent Trolls
Santa Barbara-based FindTheBest, the online comparison and research site headed by Kevin O'Connor, scored a legal win Friday, saying that a judge has invalidated a software patent owned by Lumen View Technology, LLC, which is in the midst of a patent battle with the company. The company has been in a quest to take down Lumen View, which it has called a patent troll. The company has been in the midst of a civil RICO lawsuit against Lumen View, and has vowed to take a hard line on patent licensing firms, which it says are using "unethical, corrupt, and unfair" business practices against companies.
