Company Claims Patent on XML

“A small software developer plans to seek royalties from companies that use XML, the latest example of patent claims embroiling the tech industry.

“Charlotte, N.C.-based Scientigo owns two patents (No. 5,842,213 and No. 6,393,426) covering the transfer of “data in neutral forms.” These patents, one of which was applied for in 1997, are infringed upon by the data-formatting standard XML, Scientigo executives assert.”
