Potential headache for fellow web designers?
This article on The Standard tipped me off to a potential for a lot of recoding for fellow web dev heads. It seems that Eolas and the University of Californnia are suing Microsoft for patent infringement relating to technology that “allows web page developers to embed interactive programs in Web pages. A browser, equipped with the University of California’s patented technology, is able to deliver that interactivity to the user. For example, the technology is used often with stock information, video players, games, virtual real estate tours and other interactive content on the Web. The patent allows the Web to be a platform for fully interactive embedded applications.” More at the UC office of the President webpage.
