Patents in the news

From the yesterday's InformationWeek:

A half-decade after it won a $565 million court judgment against Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) for patent infringement, University of California tech spinoff Eolas has filed another lawsuit based on the same technology—this time against a virtual who's who of the tech industry's biggest players.

Named in the suit, filed Tuesday, are Adobe (NSDQ: ADBE), Sun Microsystems (NSDQ: JAVA), Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO), Google (NSDQ: GOOG), eBay (NSDQ: EBAY), Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN), and Perot Systems. Also listed as defendants are several companies, including Blockbuster, Playboy, JPMorgan Chase, and J.C. Penney, that use the technology on their Web sites.
