If you get sued, call me...

I'm not a lawyer, but I had a web site up for event photos from a national event before Mr. Wolf filed for his patent.

I spoke to Mr. Wolf on the phone, and he assured me that my web site was not covered by his patent. His reasons as to the distinctions between my web site and his patent didn't make much sense to me. Not surprisingly, he has not responded to my request to put his assurances to me in writing.

I don't think you are supposed to able to patent something that was already in public use before you "invented" it.

My public use prior to his patent application, might have a negative impact on his patent.

I'm not a lawyer, and I may very well have misunderstood the legal principles.

If there are any lawyers working on this case, I'd be happy to talk to them.
