JDS should be compensated. Clearly Milestone STOLE JDS' idea of storing video from an IP camera on a PC (no way Milestone could have gotten that idea without stealing it from JDS). Identifying the cameras by MAC address must also be something that JDS deserves a patent on. It's not like every router in the world identifies devices by their MAC address, so poor, poor JDS got ripped off by evil Milestone.
- in this case, sarcasm WAS intended
Milestone is going to drag this out to bleed JDS dry, then move for invalidation of the patents, which should be easy.
