It’s disturbing to read that a relatively obscure web design firm has gone and patented an invention involving rich media apps like AJAX. What’s also disturbing is how they were even awarded the patent in the first place. This would definitely hamper the development of more innovative web services.
I don’t think this will go anywhere. I bet it has as much luck as the company that patented the hperlink, or Amazon’s patent of 1-click purchases.
I certainly hope so!
