In reference to the patent: US20140288683

There are so many applications that do live stats on mobile devices. Does this patent have the ability to shutdown those hundreds of companies that have done the same thing. Also wht if a website had the ability to do this, can a browser on a mobile device account for breaching the patent just because live stats are on a mobile browser? Yahoo was doing live stats on a mobile browser far before this patent was created.

  • It's only an "Application" not a "patent", and I suspect it will be rejected. – arober11 May 6 '15 at 16:39
  • Can you explain what that means? They have it listed at the bottom of their site as if it was a patent. – Mike Flynn May 6 '15 at 17:17
  • Wikipedia has an article on applicaitions, essentially an application is just a official document you complete detailing what you think you've invented (a bit like a driving licence application). If the patent office examiner finds the claims in your document to be non obvious, not already known to them (a patent for the wheel was granted in Australia in 2001), and in a patentable field....., you may end up with a patent being "granted", or the examiner offering a few detail why a grant can't be made in it's present state. – arober11 May 6 '15 at 17:31
  • Why would they have text at the bottom of their site stating its a Patent? – Mike Flynn May 6 '15 at 17:41
  • Because that one was granted. – arober11 May 7 '15 at 13:36
