Submission + - Walker Digital sues 100+ tech companies ( 1

strayant writes: On April 12, 2011, Walker Digital (who owns Priceline) sued 100+ companies for patent violations. Three of the four patents appear to generally describe the workings of any e-commerce site. I have no experience with patent law, but I heavily question the validity of such vaguely defined patents. Once again, it looks like small businesses have less of a chance surviving in this country due to these types of lawsuits.
