Rate This Amazon Patent On A Scale From 1 To 5

from the silly-patents dept

theodp writes "On Thursday, the USPTO revealed that Amazon is seeking a new patent for Profiling item sellers to inform item purchasing decisions and build trust in a multiple-seller marketplace, which Amazon explains can entail asking buyers for feedback rated on a 1 to 5 point scale with a rating of 1 being worst and a rating of 5 being best. BTW, ex-USPTO Commissioner James E. Rogan links exclusively to Amazon from his website these days to sell his autobiography. "
