An Elf Steals Amazon’s One-click Patent

The USPTO recently reviewed and ultimately struck down the Amazon one-click patent. This story is fascinating because the patent review was funded by a New Zealand actor who collected private donations. And here is the cool part. The actor did uncredited motion capture for Elves and Orcs used in the battle sequences for the Lord of the Rings movies.

Maybe next he’ll get medieval on Google’s Data-center-in-box Patent.
