With yesterday only we reported that Twitter rolled out two-step login verification, the MegaUpload founder Kim Dotcom has claimed via his Twitter account that the login authentication is his innovation and Google, Facebook and Twitter infringed his intellectual property rights. To proof his claims, Dotcom pointed to a patent back to 1997.
“I never sued them,” Dotcom continues. “I believe in sharing knowledge and ideas for the good of society. But I might sue them now cause of what the U.S. did to me.” While “Google, Facebook, Twitter, Citibank, etc. offer Two-Step-Authentication Massive IP infringement by U.S. companies. My innovation. My patent,” his tweet reads.
Whatever next, we believe it would be worth noting as Twitter and other companies have to give answer for this on what they think over the claim.
