Markzware Files Patent Lawsuit for Preflight Software

Markzware, makers of FlightCheck, have filed a lawsuit against the makers of a competing preflight document-checking app, on the grounds that it violates a patent for a “Device and method for examining, verifying, correcting and approving electronic documents prior to printing, transmission or recording.”

It sounds like they’re claiming to own a patent covering the entire concept of preflight software. For shame.
