Patently Absurd 

Once the province of a nuts-and-bolts world, patents are now being 
applied to thoughts and ideas in cyberspace. It's a ridiculous 
phenomenon, and it could kill e-commerce. 


When 21st-century historians look back at the breakdown of the United 
States patent system, they will see a turning point in the case of 
Jeff Bezos and Amazon.com and their special invention: "The patented 
One ClickŪ feature," Bezos calls it.
