Amazon Pleads For, Gets Some Patent Mercy

from the patents,-patents-and-more-patents dept

theodp writes “In the Amazon v. Pinpoint lawsuit, which claims that Amazon’s personalized book and music video suggestions infringe on Pinpoint’s business-method patents, Amazon’s motion for summary judgment has been granted in-part, with a judge ruling one asserted patent invalid, but allowing other claims to move toward trial. BTW, Amazon continues to bolster its own patent portfolio, picking up a patent last week for Locating Web-Based Product Offerings.”
