301 Prior Art Filed Against BitBills Patent

Over the last several weeks, we have been getting a few questions informing us of the BitBills patent and asking us what we planned on doing about it. After replying to all the emails, we decided to publicly post this.

On July 22, 2013, even before Crypto Coin Wallet Cards went live, a 301 letter was filed with the the USPTO showing the prior art from the BitcoinTalk.org forum.

There is a pretty good possibility that no one will read the letter at the USPTO, but it will lay the groundwork for a patent reexamination, should the patent actually be issued.
