In the News "A payment system devised by online retail giant Amazon is too obvious to patent, the European Patent Office (EPO) has ruled. Amazon had hoped to patent the way its customers pay for products through the click of a single webpage button. The company was previously granted patent rights to the payment system in the US."

I thought the EU did not do software patents?
Or has this changed?

But 1Click patent is not a software patent. It's a process patent. At least it was filed like one to EPO.

And the sleazy language used in those kind of applications are just appalling.
