Patent Troll Eolas sues corporate giants over AJAX | Deep Tech - CNET News

The '985 Patent is a continuation of the '906 patent, and allows Web sites to add fully-interactive embedded applications to their online offerings through the use of plug-in and Ajax (asynchronous JavaScript and XML) Web development techniques," Eolas said in a statement about the lawsuit.

And this my friends is why software patents suck and need to be ended. The fact that a company like Eolas can even bring suit over such generic ideas is ridiculous. Let's hope the Supreme Court goes the right way in the Bilski case so companies like Eolas can go away for good.
