Seven Patent Reforms While We Wait For Nirvana



Amazon 1-Click Patent Survives Almost Unscathed

,----[ Quote ]
| Zordak writes "Amazon's infamous '1-click'
| patent has been in reexamination at the
| USPTO for almost four years. Patently-O now
| reports that 'the USPTO confirmed the
| patentability of original claims 6-10 and
| amended claims 1-5 and 11-26. The approved-
| of amendment adds the seeming trivial
| limitation that the one-click system
| operates as part of a 'shopping cart model.'
| Thus, to infringe the new version of the
| patent, an eCommerce retailer must use a
| shopping cart model (presumably non-1-click)
| alongside of the 1-click version. Because
| most retail eCommerce sites still use the
| shopping cart model, the added limitation
| appears to have no practical impact on the
| patent scope.'"
