近期有关比特币挖矿机芯片设计中ASICBOOST专利侵权的问题已经成为了比特币社区的热门话题,迄今为止该专利持有者还没有发表过意见,近期彩云比特首家收到了专利持有者特别委托律师事务所发表的正式声明,如下:

关于ASICBOOST专利维权的一封公开信 

  
最近针对ASICBOOST专利侵权的揭发和讨论已经引起了比特币社区的广泛关注,很多人都对某些比特币芯片和矿机厂商的蓄意专利侵权行为发表了谴责。实际上,本专利发明人早在 2013 年底就获得了本项专利的全球优先权并于 2015 年 5 月公开发布了专利内容。根据 PCT 国际专利合作条约规定,自专利申请内容公布之日起,本专利申请便已受到参与各国相关法律的临时保护,其中包括美国、中国、和韩国等地的专利法规。 

时至今日,尚无任何公司或个人获得过ASICBOOST专利申请的授权,然而有些比特币矿机生产厂商已经把本专利申请覆盖的设计方法应用于矿机硬件或软件之中。这样潜在的侵权行为行为不仅严重侵犯了专利申请持有者的合法权利,而且对这个领域的其他各方形成不公平竞争。尤其是这些潜在侵权的产品会不负责任地将无辜的消费者置于法律和商业的风险之中。

为此,该专利申请持有公司委托我们律师事务所发表本项声明,敦促涉嫌非法侵权的矿机芯片制造商、矿机制造商、销售代理商尊重专利方的合法权益,立即停止一切涉嫌故意侵权的生产、销售、和使用行为,并向本律师事务所通报历史侵权的生产和销售记录。否则本律师事务所将不得不代表专利方全力追究故意侵权的责任,包括但不限于追溯自专利公示以来蒙受由故意侵权所造成的一切损失。同时我们也欢迎知情人士联系本所,共同揭露和制止侵权行为,还比特社区一片蓝天净土。

Recent discovery and discussion on the pending ASICBOOST patent infringement has attracted widespread attention in the Bitcoin community. Many condemned willful patent nfringements committed by some bitcoin chip and miner manufacturers. In fact, the patent cnventor claimed its worldwide priority date at the end of 2013. The corresponding PCT application was published in May of 2015 and is entitled to provisional rights in those PCT participating countries including the U.S., China, and Korea since its publication date.

To date, no individual or business entity has been authorized to use or sell products based on the ASICBOOST patent application, yet some bitcoin miner manufacturers have implemented various features of the pending ASICBOOST patent in their mining hardware and firmware potentially infringing the pending ASICBOOST patent. They have not only seriously violated the legal rights of the owner of the pending ASICBOOST patent, but also gained unfair advantage in this business sector. Additionally, the potentially infringing products irresponsibly put innocent consumers at various legal and commercial risks. 203 N LaSalle, Suite 2100 Chicago, IL 60601 Tel (312) 888-6633 Fax (217) 970-1066 [email protected] 
 
Therefore, our law firm is authorized by the patent holding company to make this general announcement. All parties related to the potential patent infringement, such as Bitcoin chip makers, Bitcoin miner manufacturers and their sales representatives shall immediately cease production and sales activities of any products in connection to the pending patent application. The infringers should contact our firm and disclose their production and sales records related to our patent pending technology since 2015. Otherwise, we will have no choice but to take legal actions to protect the legal rights of the patent holding company, including but not limited to seeking compensation of all losses and damages since the patent was published. Meanwhile, people in possession of knowledge regarding the potential nfringement are welcome to contact us. Let’s work together to stop those infringement activities and make the Bitcoin community a better field.
