Amazon.com one-click patent may be nullified?

That’s what a blogger/activist said may happen, leading to some chatter.

This could be a seismic event, now that patent reform is on the front burner.

Amazon’s one-click patent was the prime example of the patent system gone awry.

I asked an Amazon spokeswoman for its side of the story and whether it’s going to fight this and haven’t heard back yet.

So much for old-school balanced reporting, here’s a link to the original post.

Update: Amazon did respond to Out-Law.com and said it believes the patent will be upheld on the review granted the blogger, Peter Calveley.
