Quoted from flynnibus:
It's not hashing that is patented... it's the method of using that existing tool in a novel **process** to solve a specific challenge. It's the idea of using it in this manner.
Lookups and hashing are not novel - using them within a specific process to address the problem of how to identify and separate p, and replace the dynamic content is.
That is the flaw in steve's argument. Colordmd does not lay a claim to hashing - it lays claim to the solution to the specific problem. Which is patentable and has passed that check multiple times.
This is a great post, I myself as a software engineer have thought, how can you patent hashing something and looking it up. I have wondered the viability of the patent. Now it is very obvious that they are infringing on the patent and those infringing are just using a lot of misinformation to try and make their case.
