BT files hyperlink patent suit against Prodigy

Brian sent in This One at The Standard on British Telecom\'s idiotitic legal moves to get money from ISP\'s.


After discovering, in a routine check, that it owned the patent for the hyperlink, BT wrote to 17 U.S. ISPs, asking them to pay for the privilege of using the technology through licensing agreements. Nerver mind that someone did it Way Back in the 60\'s in CA.
