This good news in from John Lewis:
A long-time target of the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Patent Busting Project has finally been destroyed. Back in 1999, Test.com patented for-fee testing over the Internet and has since approached a number of publishers and universities seeking licensing fees. The patent was reexamined last year and now the PTO has officially rejected all of the claims in the patent as “obvious and non-patentable”. Online testing is finally safe for the public domain.
