My idea involves around holding down a click and release above on prompted menues. In the patent, it has the same interaction, although it specifically mentioned a radially-distributed menus. What I'm hoping to find out is does this mean that anything which related to sharing/in browser/ that involves a radially-distributed menus are prohibited or count as infringing this patent?
Although mine does not look like a pie but it has the same layout displayed in Fig.1 C.
As patent have mentioned these
As used herein, “radially-distributed” refers to a menu having menu items arranged in a pattern that radiates from a point.
As used herein, “pie menu” means a substantially circular menu made by arrangement of menu items, or “pie slices,” around a central point where selection of a menu item depends on direction rather than distance. In some cases, “pie menu” is used interchangeably with “radial menu.”
Accordingly, a radially-distributed menu has many suitable shapes and sizes. Suitable shapes include, by way of non-limiting examples, substantially circular, semi-circular, partially circular, substantially elliptical, semi-elliptical, substantially ovoid, semi-ovoid, substantially square, substantially diamond, substantially rectangular, substantially triangular, substantially pentagonal, substantially hexagonal, substantially octagonal, and the like. Suitable sizes are generally regulated by available display space and by the number of menu items.
