GNOME faces ‘baseless’ patent lawsuit for organising images

GNOME Foundation has been issued with a lawsuit from Rothschild Patent Imaging (RPI) for allegedly infringing a patent regarding the wireless distribution of images. Shotwell is a free, open source, image organiser designed to provide personal photo management for the GNOME desktop environment. “The product imports and filters photographic images from cameras, allowing users to organise the photos and share them on social media,” is one example of the alleged infringement, according to the complaint.
