Ask Jeeves Sued

from the silly-lawsuits dept

Ah, the fun of being a public company. Ask Jeeves is being sued for patent infringement in a case that very clearly looks like a company just trying to cash in. I find it especially interesting that the company in question doesn't actually sell anything, but seems to just go after people infringing on its patents. So when is it that we plan to get around to reforming patent law?
