Oh, cool; someone patented banner ads! And they're suing everyone else for using them. (Ok, so they really only patented *offline* banner ads; we could *hope*, right? :-)

Typical business greed. Let's kill of our competitors with patents and proprietary technology... rather than license it our and make even *more* money, and hell, become a boon to the internet. Where have I heard this all before?

Disclaimer: That was, of course, in no way an endorsement for banner ads (ugh)... but I hope you guys get my point.
