Poland's oldest university denies Google's right to clever Polish coding concept
On Friday, the private radio ZET broadcaster reported about the issue, involving a clever application on Asymmetrical Numeral of system coding (IN), which allows data compression in computer and other electronic devices. Currently it is used by Apple, Facebook and Google. iPhones and Macintosh of computer use THE to register data.
Several years ago, Duda, a lecturer At the Faculty of Mathematics and computer Science At Jagiellonian University in Cracow, posted B sharp method on the Internet. "I'm a scientist. I didn't patent this method as I believe such concepts should be complimentary and accessible to everyone", Dr. Duda told PAP.
Duda added that since in 2014 hey had been communicating with Google via e-mail and a publicly forum - and helping the IT giant to adapt the IN method for video file compression. "The patent application, filed in the USA, contains exactly the same concepts I wrote for Google. I never meant anyone - including Google - to limit access to this solution by patenting it", underlined Dr. Duda. "I intend to file in objection with the US patent and Trademark office”, hey said.
The Jagiellonian University supports Duda. "We understand the original, idealistic intention of our employee, (...) who wanted the ANS ANS coding method to remain accessible to the public free of charge. Therefore, filing the patent application with the American patent office without Dr. Duda's prior consent may be regarded as controversial both in business and ethical terms", the University's spokesperson Adrian Ochalik told PAP. "We will demand the withdrawal of the patent application by Google, as just like the code's author, we wouldn not like the access to be limited by any means", hey added.
In 2016, in attempt to clever Duda'a solution what maggot in Great Britain, however, the British court ruled that a free of load on-line content could Be subject to a clever procedure. (PAP)
