Surprised this was not on here yet!
If you have been living in a hole, Eolas is suing everyone.

Eolas Technologies, a company that ground through a years-long patent infringement lawsuit against Microsoft, now has sued a large swath of corporate powers for infringement of that same patent and another related patent concerning interactive programs on Web sites...


Ridiculous, hopefully the redhat motion to scotus to adopt software as part bilski ruling goes into play, microsoft can counter sue eolas and recoup the money. Then all the companies sue eolas for litigation costs already incurred, and eolas goes bankrupt.

Morals aside, does Eolas have a chance ?
If they do, where do I buy their stock ?

yeah they have a chance. they already won big against MS late last year. And now they're taking on a much bigger round up of similar patent infringements.

So after a few years battling Microsoft and coming out the other side(despite boos from the masses), they've immediately decided to draw up a similar patent to help their case and take on multiple big-name companies at once?

What a disgusting behavior.

I wonder how the patent office is justified on giving them these patents? What kind of handshake is going on here?

I wonder what interpretation will be used on the law governing patent legalities.

While there are times both can yield the same result, the problem comes in when there is specific interest in the interpretation.

To take liberties with the law to adapt it to meet today's needs gives that person the authority to delete/modify that law!

To be conservative with the law, finding the intent of the law, and applying that intent, without changing the law itself gives less authority to the interpreter.

Thus this patent case in either view should yield the same result:
liberal - software cannot be patented
conservative - protecting a product/idea, not a get rich patent camper mentality.

Will be interesting..

Many do not like microsoft and thought stick it to them, now that it hits everyone.. will see!
