Princeton professors Ed Felten and Andrew Appel are certainly no strangers to drawing controversy, and it now looks like they've stirred the pot yet again, this time drawing the ire of Sequoia Voting Systems as a result of their plans to conduct some further e-voting analysis. At the heart of this latest brouhaha is plans that New Jersey election officials reportedly had to send some Sequoia Advantage e-voting machines to the profs for analysis, which Sequoia is unsurprisingly not so keen about. In fact, they've gone so far as to send Felten an email saying that such a plan violates Sequoia's licensing agreement for use of the systems, and that they've "retained counsel to stop any infringement of our intellectual properties, including any non-compliant analysis." No word on the professors' future plans just yet but, given their past history, we suspect they won't be backing down quite that easily.
