There's an article at Salon.com that does a pretty good job of summing up all the hubbub surrounding Amazon.com's one-click patent. The article discusses the patent itself as well as the surge of opposition that it has come up against on the Internet.
Is it just me or has there been an increase in ridiculous legal decisions involving the Internet lately? Between Amazon.com's one-click patent being upheld in federal court, NSI screwing up a domain transfer (twice!) and not being held accountable, and the whole etoy.com thing, it's been a pretty wacky few weeks.
As for me, I'm cashing in; I'm gonna apply for patents on two-click through twenty-click ordering. Slip me five bucks per order or you'll have to click through an entire game of Myst every time you want to order something online.
