Amazon’s 1-click patent to be reexamined

It was recently announced that‘s 1-click payment patent will be reconsidered by the USPTO, but what is so interesting is that it was not filed by one of’s business competitors or by an NPO like the Electronic Frontier Foundation which protects online freedom, but from a New Zealand actor who paid the reexamination fee with money raised through his blog for the purpose.

In his words, this is about nothing more than payback for an annoyingly slow book delivery.
