We created a QR Code to direct consumers to a "find the right fit" website, for our product. We created it via a 3rd party provider. Months later, we the were notified that we are infringing on a NEOMEDIA patent. The process we are infringing on is the "redirect", where once the scan is performed, it is tallied on a host site, then redirected to our site.  NEOMEDIA says we need to pay for that, they own the redirect "process".

My question is...does anyone know how I can create a QR code, that goes directly to the URL I define, without a redirect, that I do not have to license or worry about getting sued over ?  Seems easy, I know...but I just want to be 100% sure I am safe.  I'd appreciate any advice in the matter.
