Google Zxing infringes on NeoMedia's patent.

I am a developer of this library. This anonymous comment was likely published by a person named 'streetstylz', who is an investor in the company, and publishes similar comments across the internet. Search for it.

The claim is utterly false. The subject of the patent in question concerns so-called 'indirect encoding', wherein the barcode contains not content, but an identifer, which is resolved against a remote server of some kind, where the ID has been previously mapped to a URL.

This is obviously not what the library concerns, as anyone can verify. It supports 'direct' encoding, and, among other things, provides no such remote server as named in the patent.

I've tried, unsuccessfully, to reason with him. He knowingly continues to post misinformation. It deserves to be debunked, then ignored, wherever it pops up.
