Trend Sues Barracuda Over Gateway Anti-Spam Techniques

Wow. Just WOW. In a nutshell Trend is suing Barracuda. Why? Because they can. Because the USPTO gave them a BS patent, like they’ve given so many others. Wow. Just. Wow.

If Trend manages to win this it could open up all other AV software, gateway scanning software, and similar products to litigation.
