    Either way, it fundamentally mathematics isn't it, how do you patent that? You don't.
    Oh, dude, you were clear, I was just being pedantic

    I think the validity will really come down to exactly what was patented. If the method being used in the algorithm was patented, they might have a leg to stand on. But, like you said, if it's just the algorithm/formula itself, then no luck, IMO.

    Yeah, I'm in agreement there. If I were Sean I would actually let it play out and see what the courts say. Though that being said, sounds kinda like this GeniCap company doesn't want to get things ugly or delay anything. They're being somewhat civil about it, at least at this point.


    On the most positive note, an out-of-court settlement (quoting the words "normal discussion" uttered by Gielis himself through the TechRaptor article) may square off the issue once and for all...

    That's the impression I'm getting as well. Maybe the guy's a gamer?
