    The GBAtemp staff has AlanJohn found guilty of violating a patent Monkat, making the Internet troll to pay $ 5,000,000 damages. In addition, it considers possible implications for Sausage Head.

    The statement was made ??by raulpica, the moderator still has to confirm the verdict. It is unlikely that the staff will decide otherwise, reports Rydian. The patent, the staff found that AlanJohn infringed is registered under number 5,893,120, and describes a way to store information and read with a hashing technique, which expire dates on the fly removed. AlanJohn would infringe the patent in the use of different versions of the R4-pro kernel.

    Violating the Sausage Head patent may have implications for My Little pony: it uses a R4-pro kernel, making it possible for AlanJohn to make adjustments so it will not run into any further penalties. In addition, the Internet troll is also able to take a license on the patent. The ruling also may have implications for other users of Sausage Head: it is possible that some Sausage Head distributions have to pay royalties for using the R4-pro kernel. Maker Costello already tried to deliberate patent declared invalid, but failed.

    The trial was started in 2011 by the relatively unknown Texas company :yaypenis:, where not only AlanJohn was sued: including Naryan, Paypal, geofcl and Ikki have come to court. A statement for these users is likely to follow later.

    Take it to a higher court where capital punishment can be authorized.
    We'll give AJ the lethal injection, Sop the electric chair,
    then we'll behead sausage head and have a feast.
