    UNILOC SUES MOJANG OVER ALLEGED PATENT INFRINGEMENT IN 'MINDCRAFT'

    Texas-based tech-patent collector Uniloc has filed suit against Mojang, claiming that the Android version of "Mindcraft," (seriously, that's what it says in the filing), infringes upon Patent #6,857,067, "System and method for preventing unauthorized access to electronic data." Specifically, the filing references claim 107 of the patent, which covers a "Computer code executable on an electronic device to prevent unauthorized access to electronic data stored on the electronic device."

    Yup, Mindcraft.

    "Unfortunately for them, they're suing us over a software patent. If needed, I will throw piles of money at making sure they don't get a cent," Notch said on Twitter this morning. "Software patents are plain evil. Innovation within software is basically free, and it's growing incredibly rapid. Patents only slow it down."



    Uniloc is seeking damages compounded by both pre and post-judgment interest, as well as ongoing royalties from Mojang. This should be a good one.

    Isn't it void if the product in question doesn't even exist?
    also doesn't that patent apply to anything ever coded ever?

    One would think so, but we all know lawyers and their ways of continuing their pursuit of the almighty dollar:)
