Submission + - Bittorrent and uTorrent sued for protocol (torrentfreak.com)

dutchwhizzman writes: "Bittorrent and uTorrent are sued for using techniques in their clients and the bittorrent protocol. From the article it appears that technologies are used that were submitted in a 1999 patent, that was approved in 2007. This itself is not uncommon, but reading what technologies are used, HTTP could very well be prior use, or violating at least part of the same protocol."
