"FotoMedia has accused FotoTime and the other defendants of infringing three patents it holds related to organizing and sharing images online. […] "All our hard work and dreams were almost ruined in the summer of 2008, when we were sued for alleged patent violations by a company called FotoMedia," FotoTime co-owner Karl Swierenga wrote. […] Patents on "organizing and sharing images online"? Surely these are "business methods". I hope the Supreme Court (In Re Bilski) can bring some sanity to this ridiculous software patent mess the lawyers have gotten us into."
