|Online Retailers Win Search Patent Infringement Case|
Kelora Systems LLC Ruling
| 2:29 pm on May 24, 2012 (gmt 0)|
|A federal judge has dismissed a big patent lawsuit against web retailers. |
"After nearly two years of litigation, some of the biggest names in e-commerce have won a key patent infringement case against Kelora Systems LLC.
Kelora, a developer and patent holder of a certain type of site search software, in 2010 filed a patent infringement suit..."
This has to do with online shopping "parametric search", (search by Price, Color, Size, etc), to locate a product within a family of products.

The patent was found to be "obvious" and the judge spanked 'em.
Reminds me of the PanIP patent troll nonsense I had to help fight a few years back.
Same situation where a bunch of earlier defendants just bought a license to get the annoying fly to go away until the troll ran into the wrong defendants and then all hell broke loose ;)
