Summary:
A company named Vuestar has reportedly been sending out invoices to companies that it believes are making use of its image-linking patents. The Singapore-based operation appears to be a patent holding firm, the only purpose of which is to license its IP out to other companies. Vuestar argues that it owns patents in Singapore, Australia, and the US that cover the linking of images (instead of merely text) on the web, and therefore everyone that makes use of such a technology needs to pay up.
