Rob Griffiths and Peter Maurer:
Tonight we received notice that Moom is in violation of US patent number 8434019, Apparatus and method for positioning windows on a display. Yes, someone has patented positioning windows on a screen via a grid. Given we’ve been notified of a patent violation, we have no choice but to remove Moom from sale, effective immediately.
Sometime patents make sense. Most of the time however, they don’t. This is as absurd as you can imagine anything can be.
