Legal The patent wars rage on. Eolas, a company that before won US$585 million from Microsoft in 2003 in a suit that challenged the use of ActiveX and AJAX, is now after twenty-three separate companies allegedly because their precious patent was spoiled by all of them.

Embarrassed to be from USA...

This stuff makes me embarrassed to be from the USA... ;)

Software patents are simply bad in every way, there is no way you can possibly argue that. (However, I don't blame companies for acquiring them, making money is what businesses are supposed to do.)

It just goes to show how corrupt the government is, how incompetent the patent office is, and how technically inept the judges are.
