    if this holds up, Divine will go after everyone.

    He riped off many Chicago investors while buying and selling dotcoms. He even got Chicago's Mayor Daley twisting for a few months with his proposal for a high-tech center.

    Everyone laughed at Amazon - 1 - click buying.

    Divine may own that!

    This is getting so incredibly lame. Damn patent systems...who grants these anyway? And do they do it so that the governments can make some quick bucks off of the application(s)?

    H'm...I think I may have found an angle.

    "This patent is so broad, they couldn't possible sue all the companies that would violate it."

    "Grant it anyway"

    "Hunh?!??"

    "We get the money from the application...enforcement is their damn problem."

    "...oh..."

    "...and think of all the money that will be pumped into the economy in legal fees?"

    "Oh..."

    "Quick - where's that legal-school correspondence course?"

    Is it a US patent only? If so, the rest of the world is safe...

    Yeah, I believe its only a US patent. And if this does hold up. I can imagine how many sites would probably move over to the other side of the world....if that perhaps would resolve this issue....
