How Newegg crushed the "shopping cart" patent and saved online retail

http://j.mp/VHfpTd  (ars technica)

   "Soverain isn't in the e-commerce business; it's in the higher-margin
    business of filing patent lawsuits against e-commerce companies. And
    it's been quite successful until now. The company's plan to extract a
    patent tax of about one percent of revenue from a huge swath of online
    retailers was snuffed out last week by Newegg and its lawyers, who won
    an appeal ruling [PDF] that invalidates the three patents Soverain
    used to spark a vast patent war."
