Summary: Amazon builds a monopoly around un-wanted gifts
You soon may be able to make sure you never get an un-wanted gift.
Online retailer, amazon.com recently submitted a patent for a “gift converter.” The program would let you set up a wish list and parameters for your gift receiving.
“It’s business as usual” for lawyers’ circles (they just want more monopolies/patents, for their own profit). It’s a reference to business method patents and Patent WatchTroll, who exploits software patents for profit (that’s what patent lawyers generally do, but this one rude person also insults software developers in order to get his way), joins this voice from LawyersWeekly (Canada). It’s truly appalling and just one of several reasons for boycotting Amazon. █
