LXer: A patent on watching ads online? No problem, says top patent court

Published at LXer:

Last year, the Supreme Court ordered the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to reconsider the validity of a patent that broadly covers the concept of Internet users watching advertisements in exchange for accessing copyrighted content.In a decision Friday (PDF), the appeals court recognized that the Ultramercial patent doesn't specify a mechanism for implementing the ad system—but still refused to invalidate the patent on the grounds that it is too abstract.
