Blu-ray Tech At Centre Of Patent Dispute

By 56 Year Old Lady Professor

Blu-ray just can't get a win. Just at the end of a multi-year fight for survival against rival Toshiba's HD-DVD format, Blu-ray has another battle to fight.

 

By a 56 year old Female professor.

 

It seems that almost 15 years ago, a patent was handed to Prof. Gertrude F. Neumark Rothschild of Columbia University, against the manufacturing of Blue laser diodes, the heart of Blu-ray technology. If the Judge preceding on the patent infringement decides the 30 companies named in the infringement are guilty... things could get expensive.

 

One side note, I can't even get my Girlfriend interested in Blu-ray, yet the creator is, seemingly, a female. I don't get it.
