from the wonderful dept
Amazon and their famous one-click patent were the object of much ridicule concerning internet related patents that simply go too far. Now, it appears, they’re getting paid back. They’re getting sued by a bunch of companies with equally ridiculous internet patents. In the past few months we’ve noted stories where they’ve been sued for violating patents concerning electronic transactions, downloading media, and tracking visitors through a website. Two months ago, they won a fight against someone who was suing them over a patent on their personalization technology, but quickly there’s another similar patent that they need to deal with. Cendant is suing Amazon for violating a patent on offering product recommendations. Think Amazon still feels the same way about patents?
