Subject: RE: [emergency] Geolocation E911 Patented

Where is the logic that even allows a patent on this concept? It is a
realtively simple algorithm that I believe is "prior art" in all kinds
of systems. Am I missing something special that they have done?  Or are
they just theives trying to take advantage of the gullible and foolish?

More proof why the patent system doesn't work. I wonder who they will
attempt to extract cash from first?

IP911 Resource has been awarded a patent for S911, its e911 solution for
VoIP service providers.  The technology uses a GPS device to pinpoint
the exact location of a caller based on longitude, latitude, and
altitude.  After, location 
software and database comparisons are used to find the 
address of the emergency and the nearest public safety 
location and phone number to route the VoIP emergency.
