Rebuttal to Luke, the IP rip-off artist

AUTHOR: Rudi - (United States)

I consider this posting as dishonest and dishonerable. It is likely posted by a person/company who appears to be accustomed to rip off other peoples' intellectual properties without paying anything for the company's use of the IP, which is paramount to stealing. It is him and his company who are the true rip-off artists. 

The corporation was notified by the inventor directly of the corporations' unauthorized use of the inventor's family of patents. The posting here is claimed from a "Luke" from Summit, NJ, which is clearly a lie, for the inventor had not notified any compnay in Summit, or remotely close to Summit. The corporation thus hides behind a fake identity and does not wish to be identified. The posting is cearly intended to damage the inventor from whom the corporation steals, in the town where she lives.

If this posting corporation does not want to lawfully pay for the use of this family of patents, issued by the US Patent and Trademark Office, it should remove all usage from the corporations' websites immediatly and challenge the patents through a well established process with the USPTO. "Fake Luke" corporation knows full well that it will fall flat on its face in such a process with the USPTO. It also knows that it owes a licensing fee for past use, even if it were to remove all of its use of the family of patents now. 

The statement that "nearly every website is doing now" as a reason to justify the rip-off, and to justify the theft, is equivalent to saying that a large numbner of people would be justified in coming to your home to steal and rob your assets. The right of the masses trumps the ownserhip of the individual. If the individual dares to fight, he is then labelled anonymously as "rip-off artist". 

While auto-scrolling and auto-change-of-content may be used widely today, it was not in the late 1990s when this invention was conceived, implemented and tested (including a demonstration) by the inventor. At that time, and over ten years later, NO website had implemented these superior features. After more than ten years, the internet world is finally catching up. 

The "Fake Luke" company has ben notified of the infringement - for months now. They should take note that continuing use of the patent family will be deemed as willful infringement, equivalent to theft, and prosecuted.

The "Fake-Luke" Corporations' projection of its own act of theft and rip-off onto the inventor and lawful owner of this family of patents is an act of defamation on top of the theft of her IP, and is despicable.
