    Visualizing network communities: the patent

    I don't know if should feel flattered or ripped off, but a method we created for visualizing weblog communities (of which I talked about here) has been mentioned in a patent which bears the surprisingly similar name Method for visualizing weblog social network communities, which claims:
    1. A method of representing a set of on-line journals, comprising: detecting social network relationships among said on-line journals; aggregating said social network relationships;
    and generating a graphical user interface display representing said on-line journals, wherein said display includes an enclosing display object within which are displayed at least one sub-region, said sub-region enclosing a plurality of inner regions,
    wherein each inner region within a given sub-region represents an on-line journal having at least one social network relationship with at least one other on-line journal represented by another inner region displayed within said sub-region, wherein said
    social network relationships comprise at least one comment written by an author associated with a first one of said on-line journals and wherein said comment was entered into a second one of said on-line journals.

    I'm pretty sure it does not count towards H index. Tough luck.

    Prior art, isn't it? Hmm.. quick! Let's patent a social network for prior art searching for patents! ;)

    JJ: And the patent has already been granted, it's not a case of an application that it's later turned down. I would like to get a look at the US examiner report.

    rvr: You can not patent that, it already exists :P


    De: JJ Fecha: 2008-11-26 18:11

    I guess it's just a matter of being there first, there's nothing I can do. BTW, fernand0 is another one of the "we".

    De: Anónima Fecha: 2008-11-26 18:24

    But _you_ were there first: the patent is from 26-05-2005 and your papers cited by the patent examiner are from 2003 and 2004.

    That means that the patent examiner has considered that what is claimed is new and inventive compared whith what you published. If he had considered otherwise the patent would not hace been granted.

    At first sight it doesn't seem so to me. That's why I would like to have a look at the US examiner reasoning. I think it's avalaible somewhere in the US Patent and Trademark Office web. If I find it, I'll let you know.

    De: JJ Fecha: 2008-11-26 18:28

    I meant being there to patent first. From a shallow examination, he does seem to mention other methods, but even the similarity in title is striking. But I thought it was the patent requester the one who had included the references...
    Besides, the patent mentions comments (which, BTW, are difficult to assign to blogs, first, because, as we do here, we don't mention an URL, and second, because blogs can be collective, while comments are personal)

    De: Anónima Fecha: 2008-11-26 18:45

    The first claim seems pretty general even if comments are mentioned but since I haven't read either the patent or your papers carefully, I shouldn't give an opinion yet :-)

    The patent requester didn't cite your papers, they were cited by the US examiners during the procedure. You can see that in the firt page of the granted patent US7373606

    Perhaps the applicant has cited it too (I haven't really read all the document) butI don't seem to be able to find "merelo" or "guervos" in the ascii fulltext of the patent.

    Hi, JJ!

    IMHO, you should check if those guys used any part of your work or -- taking into account there is someone -- even violated/broke the license you put your code/idea/method/etc.

    Intelectual property infringement??

    De: JJ Fecha: 2008-11-29 17:04

    I really have no idea. I would need a lawyer to check that, and I'm pretty sure that when IBM patents something, they do it on solid ground.

    Hey JJ,
    Why you need a lawyer for check? You can do a market with SMS Marketing in Rawalpindi and its can help you a lot to market your brand.

    I have to express some appreciation to you for rescuing me from this circumstance. Right after exploring throughout the search engines and coming across recommendations which were not helpful, I was thinking my life was done. Being alive without the presence of approaches to the issues you’ve solved by means of your good write-up is a critical case, as well as those that would have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your web blog. Your primary natural talent and kindness in maneuvering all the things was priceless. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a subject like this. It’s possible to at this time relish my future. Thanks very much for your reliable and result oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to recommend the website to any person who ought to have direction about this subject. betjuego
