IBM Seeks Patent For Separating Business, Web Code

from the seems-a-bit...-obvious dept

theodp writes “You don’t get to be the patent king by shying away from filing patents, but IBM’s latest round of patent applications includes one for Isolating Business Programming from Web User Interface Programming that’s unbelievable.” Just the latest in a long line. Hopefully this patent won’t be granted, but it does seem fairly ridiculous. It’s clearly part of their web services strategy, but this simply should not be patentable – and there must be a ton of prior art.
