If I am reading this right, the New York Times hasn't been sued for infringement for the patent mentioned in the article. They are asking a court to declare the patent invalid..

Correct?

says the NYTimes is suing the patent holder in an effort to get a ruling that the NY Times is not infringing.

Both articles are saying the same thing - seeking a DJ of non-infringement.  The amazing thing is the level of plagiarism here, even down to the broken/missing link on the patent number that you can supposedly "click" to see. {Corrected per JimIvey's comment below}

There have been a number of recent cases of a party seeking a DJ without having been threatened outright themselves, claiming their reasonable apprehension stems from the aggregated activities of the patentee/DJ defendant as against other similar entities.  Anyone know how those have turned out?

I'm doing well as of 12-13-14, and regret only not getting that 1000th post. Hope all are doing well indeed! Thanks!

Just to be fair to the local paper here, the SF Chronicle (the paper behind the SF Gate site) subscribes to the Bloomberg wire.
