Absurd IP Infringement Claims

If you thought that the holding of the Belgian court that Google was infringing copyrights of  Copiepresse when it provided links to the newspaper articles and photos and asked to pay around $77.5 million as damages was absurd especially because the US courts would probably have taken a more lenient view, taking into consideration all the facts such as Google bringing in tons of traffic to the these newspapers and the newspaper consortium actually generating revenue in the process, then here is another absurd claim by a Singaporean company called Vuestar which states that it has the patent to link images from one website to another site, Method of locating web-pages by utilising visual images and so if anyone used these links then they will get sued by Vuestar.
