Amazon's One-Click Patent Wins Round One

from the no-bounty-winners dept

BountyQuest couldn't find a winner who could find prior art to disprove Amazon's 1-Click patent. There were some amusing attempts, though. Somehow, I don't think that Norm from Cheer's line "give me a beer" shows prior art in establishing a single click system. It is unfortunate, though, that nothing was found. It remains as one of the sillier patents awarded during this internet craze. Maybe I should have tried to patent Techdirt's method for sneering at stupid ideas.
