Wreaks of Xerox trying to do a cash grab.
Unless they have an in-production working model of these "technologies" then that is all I will ever think this is.
Show me where Xerox has implemented their patent in a real world example then maybe I will have some sympathy. But if all they have is a patent and haven't done anything with it then they are just another techno patent troll who needs to go away.
Develop your products or get out of the way of people who will.
The fact that a company can patent a way of doing something in code and then never develop it... then sit back and wait for another company to spend millions developing something similar, then sue is insanity.
I find it hard to believe this is something that Xerox just became aware of
According to the article they were in talks with the companies for quite a while trying to get them to license this stuff from Xerox, when that failed they sued.
