Challenging Patents For Rest Of Us

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is targeting ten patents it believes have been issued in error and whose technology -in wide use – is not patentable. “These patent owners have been threatening people that just can’t defend themselves. They’re trying to claim ownership over some fundamental part of software of the Internet that people use every day, and they’re threatening small companies or individuals that can’t afford lawyers.” The list includes Clear Channel’s claim of patent on a process for making concert recordings available after concerts.
