Default Newegg trial: Crypto legend takes the stand, goes for knockout patent punch

From http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2...ck-out-patent/

Newegg's courtroom face-off with patent-licensing giant TQP Development is nearing its end. TQP has sued hundreds of companies, saying it has patented the common Web encryption scheme of combining SSL with the RC4 cipher. Almost 140 companies have paid TQP a total of more than $45 million. But online retailer Newegg, which has sworn not to settle with "patent trolls" like TQP, took the case to a jury.
Newegg called Diffie from (Diffie-Hellman key exchange) as expert witness.
The article contains some very interesting historical facts about public-key cryptography.
