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.

Someone needs to shut this shit hole down.

From what I can see they are good at pulling the blinders over the patent office and describing obvious technologies in a way that grants them a patent.

The patent office is a relic of the industrial revolution. It has no place in the world of software and needs to be disbanded along with this group of asshat f--ks who parade around acting like computer scientists while robbing companies blind in US courts.
