Submission + - Eola's Web Patent Claim Invalidated by US Court

Ajay Anand writes: A US court has upheld a decision to invalidate a tech firm's claim to own technologies underpinning the web.

Eolas's claims revolved around a series of patents it had been using to extract licence fees from hi-tech firms such as Microsoft and Oracle.

However, Eolas's claims were disputed by many others including web creator Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

The ruling will also mean an end to many other lawsuits Eolas mounted against hi-tech firms.
