1464171 story New Amazon Patent Cites Bezos Patent Reform 198 198 Posted by timothy on Wednesday June 15, 2005 @06:08AM from the give-an-inch-they'll-charge-you-a-mile dept. theodp writes "In seeking yet another patent related to 'single-action ordering of items,' Amazon asked the USPTO to consider a number of documents, including Doonesbury cartoons, which Amazon earlier claimed vindicated its 1-Click patent. Ironically, much of this material was collected and edited by BountyQuest, which reportedly received $1+ million from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in the name of patent reform. A USPTO examiner dutifully considered the material, and on Tuesday U.S. Patent No. 6,907,315 was issued to Amazon."
