"...(EFF), which challenged Personal Audio's '504 patent, argues it is not a particularly new or novel idea."
Unlike "Rounded Corners" or
paying immediately "1-Click Shopping". Go EFF! Fight those trolls for you corporate overlords, you hairy troll.
In all honesty, it is a bullshit software patent, but how's that new? It's easy to believe that ANY software patent is bullshit (because it basically is). If the EFF wants to play attack dog for it's "sponsers", fine, but every now and then an attack dog will bite it's master. But maybe the EFF is just a lapdog.
