Didn't Disney rise from the ashes after Sony Corp. of America v. Universal City Studios Inc gave VCR's the SC's blessing?
 
They should keep an open mind about IP.  Don't harass your target market, find a new way to sell them services.

My rough estimate is about $10k of work to comply with the expedited examination requirements -- it's actually considerably easier to file the old-fashioned Petition to Make Special.

 
Last week I listened to the PTOs web seminar on the Accelerated Examination process. One thing I hadn't noticed before is that with the exception of petitions made special for health, age, and the JPO pilot program (PPH), all petitions to make special now have to comply with the Accelerated Examination program.

Re Agent_X's comment:  That's something that's been shown over and over again in various marketplaces -- huge corporate effort to stem the tide of a new technology and the technology ultimately pays them a handsome profit.  There are more examples in the automotive industry -- fighting seatbelts, 3-point seatbelts, 5mph bumpers, airbags, emissions standards, unleaded gas, etc.; each of which led to even higher profits as (i) people felt more comfortable with their newer, safer offerings and (ii) people felt less comfortable with their older, less safe cars.
 
Re Isaac's comment:  That sucks!  Oh well, thanks for the note.
 
Regards.
