Amazon Moving To Patent Honor System Processes
from the silly-patents dept
theodp writes “InternetNews.com reports that Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos is apparently moving to patent the process used in the company’s Amazon Honor System, which offers a payment system that allow Web sites to solicit small donations from visitors or charge for content on a pay-per-view basis. “ I thought that Bezos had gotten past the idea of using ridiculous patents. I guess not. There must be some prior art on the idea of using a tip jar. I’m sure even PayPal might be able to claim prior art against this patent.
