Hi folks,
I don't know whether I'm the only person to have received this, but just in case I am: I won't have much time to look at this, but maybe someone else is interested?

> I found your name as one of the contributors to the Media Fragments URI 1.0.  I work with a group of solutions architects interested in mobile messaging. We recently became aware that a group called Helferich Patent Licensing is claiming that its patents cover sending SMS messages containing URLs to mobile phones. Helferich Patent Licensing sued HP in March, claiming that HP is infringing 9 of its patents. The exact language from the complaint is below. The entire complaint is attached.  It is hard to believe that these assertions are valid. Is the Media Fragments Working Group aware of this?  We would appreciate hearing any thoughts that you and the group has on this issue.

> "Hewlett-Packard infringed at least one or more of the Asserted Content Claims by using, and practicing systems and methods that permit Hewlett-Packard to prepare, and format messages to be sent to its customers’ mobile wireless devices that include selectable identifiers, such as URLs and links, that identify additional Hewlett-Packard media and content. Hewlett Packard then causes those messages to be sent to its customers’ mobile devices, including as SMS and MMS messages. By way of specific example, Hewlett-Packard commonly prepares, formats, and sends such notifications in connection with at least its Snapfish photo sharing service, and further in connection with its various social media campaigns."
