This website is designed to help inform and educate the readers of stated facts and opinions that are shared between many VCSY Long shareholders and some non-shareholders of VCSY. Some people think that at under two cents a share, VCSY is the investment of a lifetime and then there are others who spend all of their time trying to convince the readers that VCSY is nothing but a worthless patent troll with no real future. With that being said, good luck in your search for understanding. We ask that you do not NOT buy or sell VCSY stock on anything read from this website.

It's interesting how much time and energy certain messageboard posters have spent trying to convince others that VCSY's patents have little to no future value. All of the arguments against the VCSY 6,826,744 and 7,716,629 patents have been squashed.
*On December 30, 2011 Judge Seeborg ruled in favor of VCSY in the VCSY/Interwoven Markman Hearing.
**On November 15, 2012 VCSY was issued reexamination certificates for the 6,826,744 and 7,716,629 patents by the USPTO.
***On January 4, 2013 Judge Seeborg denied Interwoven's motion for Summary Judgement
The history of VCSY goes back much further than where this brief 2006 timeline below begins. A more detailed timeline of dated events will be within the forum for you to view, if you register and are granted access beyond this point.
VCSY was granted the 7,076,521 patent on March 29, 2006. The first time we see XML mentioned as a functional programming language in patent history is in MLE/Emily 7,076,521 (separate from '744/'629 and issued later) which can then be turned toward building the '744/'629 framework using XML as a programming language - but not before.
So XML as a programming language is not used to achieve what '744/'629 claims. Therefore, a '744/'629 framework can be built in any programming language. It would be enhanced by then using MLE/Emily as an XML programming medium if necessary.
(opinion) If you are a longtime reader of the ragingbull messageboard, you might want to make a special note that tepe showed up on April 6, 2006 just one week after VCSY was granted that very powerful '521 patent. Since his arrival, tepe has been very dedicated in his efforts to harm any positive news, events or speculation that has been posted about VCSY. Tepe has been partnered with waterfoundonmars(aka - mirror, mrrrfk, kantuc, reflexxxshun, legofeeel and a few other aliases) from the very beginning.
Here is a timeline of dated events:
On March 29, 2006
Vertical Computer Systems, Inc. Receives a Notice of Allowance From The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office For a Patent Application Covering Various Aspects Of The XML Enabler Agent
On June 06, 2006
VCSY hired Niro on a contingency basis to act in connection with the licensing of VCSY's 6,826,744 patent
"Vertical Computer Systems, Inc. (VCSY) announced today that it has retained the law firm of Niro, Scavone, Haller & Niro on a contingency basis to act in connection with the licensing of United States Patent (U.S) No. 6,826,744, the underlying Patent under VCSY's SiteFlash and SiteFlash-derived products."
On April 18, 2007
Vertical Computer Systems, Inc. Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Microsoft Corporation. Inducing infringement was also listed in the lawsuit.
"VCSY claims that the Microsoft .Net System infringes U.S. Patent No. 6,826,744."
(This statement and link below is from the original VCSY lawsuit filing against Microsoft)
"Microsoft has also induced others to infringe and/or has contributorily infringed those claims of the 744 patent."
On July 24, 2008
VCSY and Microsoft entered into a Confidential Settlement Agreement the day before the scheduled Markman Hearing.
On March 25, 2010
VCSY received a continuation patent of the 6,826,744 patent that Microsoft and VCSY entered into a Confidential Settlement Agreement over.
On April 14, 2010 in VCSY's 2009 10-K VCSY's CEO Richard Wade stated;
"In July 2008, we settled an infringement claim we had initiated in federal court against Microsoft. We are waiting for the issuance of the Continuation Patent for U.S. Patent No. 6,826,744 (which SiteFlash is based upon) before we engage with new licensees because we believe the Continuation Patent provides better protection for this intellectual property asset."
One month after receiving the Continuation patent, Microsoft started moving forward in signing new licensing agreements with all of their partners and android licensing agreements with the Android crowd. Microsoft signed over 500 new licensing agreements since April of 2010. The two articles below show proof of the 500+ licenses signed during that period.
April 27, 2010
Agreement will cover HTC's Android phones.
"Since Microsoft launched its IP licensing program in December 2003, the company has entered into more than 600 licensing agreements"
April 25, 2012
Microsoft and Pegatron Corp. Sign Patent Agreement Covering Android- and Chrome-Based Devices
"Since Microsoft launched its IP licensing program in December 2003, the company has entered into more than 1,100 licensing agreements"
Microsoft obviously signed all of their partners to a new licensing agreement just after VCSY received the Continuation patent of the '744 which was the subject of the legal proceedings. So did VCSY and Microsoft entered into a beginning to end Confidential Settlement Agreement, meaning that all details are confidential from the beginning (July 24, 2008) to the end (???).
"Confidentiality procedures are often introduced in a "piecemeal" manner, leading to a lack of clarity and possible conflicts. To reduce the risk of leaks, implement acomprehensive and well-thoughtout set of procedures. They must be clear and easy to follow, and if properly implemented they will become integral parts of your business culture. While the most effective systems are designed from beginning to end by experts" (Amber Rovner?)

Microsoft enters into $1.25 Credit Indenture
Now back tracking to January 12, 2009
VCSY sent Interwoven a cease and desist letter claiming that Interwoven's TeamSite product infringes the same '744 patent that was the subject of the VCSY/Microsoft Confidential Settlement Agreement just six months earlier.
Autonomy then bought Interwoven just ten days later on January 22, 2009
By March of 2009 Autonomy CEO Mike Lynch had already completed the integration of Autonomy's IDOL with Interwoven's TeamSite product. The same TeamSite product that VCSY claims infringes the two VCSY patents('744 and '629)
On November 15, 2010
VCSY filed lawsuits against Interwoven, Samsung and LG
Samsung and LG are accused of violating VCSY's 744 and 629 patents in their mobile devices.
On December 8, 2011
1. Hewlett Packard open-sourced WebOS
2. Also on December 8, 2011 - Hewlett Packard and Microsoft entered into a four-year Cloud Computing licensing agreement
On December 14, 2011
The VCSY and Interwoven Markman Hearing was heard before Judge Seeborg
On December 30, 2011
Judge Seeborg sides with VCSY in Markman Hearing decision, telling Interwoven that the reexamination process would be a better option.
On January 6, 2012
Interwoven files ExParte Reexamination request applications on the VCSY '744 AND '629 patents, claiming prior art issues.
On November 15, 2012
VCSY received the reexamination certificates for the two patents(6,826,744 & 7,716,629) that were challenged by Interwoven/Autonomy in the lawsuit where VCSY claims that Interwoven's TeamSite product infringes those two patents.
On November 20, 2012 (just days after VCSY received the reexamination certificates)
Hewlett Packard started screaming FRAUD against Autonomy.
Obviously Autonomy's IDOL and other products are now worth much less money today than it was originally accessed at during their aquisition period, since the reexamination certificates issued to VCSY on November 15, 2012 now show that Autonomy's finacial numbers are based on infringing products.
On January 4, 2013 Judge Seeborg denied Interwovens motion for Summary Judgement.
Since then, Hewlett Packard has been showing that they are using VCSY's patent claims in IDOL10 and other Hewlett Packard/Autonomy products.
Hewlett Packard had written and dated a press release for Demember 18, 2012 but did not release it until January 10, 2013.
