RISMedia offers details of the defense’s response to allegations of perjury against real estate agent Diane Sarkisian in the ongoing patent infringement trail. The jist of the response: no attempt to conceal as documents noting her ownership of dianesarkisian.net were made available during discovery.
Far more interesting: “According to court records, many agents and brokers have already purchased licenses under the patents. Sources from a licensed distributor of these patents states that more than 800 additional patent license applications have been set into motion in the past 25 days.”
Why would the licensed distrbutor put out this information? To show that many agents and brokers are scared and are getting in before they may be part of a class action suit. And, of course, to further drive licenses. To my knowledge they still cost $10,000, just like the one once offered to Diane Sarkisian.
