The e-commerce.

New (possible) danger in e-commerce


Recommended Posts



This week, a Norwegian company named Bellboy settled a lawsuit in the second-tier court of Oslo. The obejctive of the company is to excercise a patent they have from 1993, covering a patent for e-commerce and mobile phone commerce. Their first case went down in a blaze, without the glory but the company still claims their one-loss-one-settlement is a victory for them and plans to take action on other larger companies such as the airliner SAS and others. Those are us. Their goal is to have every realtime-updated online shopping system, as their patent covers, pay them a license.


Why does this concern you? Well, their incredibly stupid-wide patent is granted in Norway, USA and EU.


Bellboy are coming out like a schnauzer with rabies and it demands our attention.

As a law student, I know that the court will follow the book in this case. And they have the de facto patent in Europe and Norwat. They also have a prior-art patent in the US, since they had the patent in EU and Norway in 1993.


The question isn't will they be a pain in the ass, but WHEN will they be a pain in the ass. If the ruling is upheld in court, the shit has hit the fan.
