Patent Lawyer

Harris's audio jack patent is 6,552,512. Very broad claims and only one piece of prior art cited - by the examiner! A five-minute search on Google Patents turned up a bunch of prior art. If Harris really wants to profit off of his patents, he should do a patent search, let the PTO reexamine it, and come out with claims that could survive challenge. Until then, all he's going to get is nuisance-value settlement, if he even gets that.
