Summary:
Sometimes quality is more important than quantity. Global Patent Holdings didn't sue as many defendants as Acacia or Erich Spangenberg this year. But their one patent claim -- claim 17 of the '341 patent -- is as disturbing as any patent being asserted by any non-practicing entity this year. Essentially, prior to the reexamination, GPH asserted that anyone with a JPEG on a website infringed their patent. Despite the fact that all 16 claims of the original patent have been finally cancelled, the one much-amended claim is still being asserted by those representing GPH to cover any website with a JPEG.
