Cybergold's patent for online incentives
From Pat Escalante at Swope Toyota on 25 August '98
Ok, what is your all's slant on the patent of online business models.
It seems now that if you give away any incentives for visiting a site
you must pay a royalty to cyber gold. I am assuming this would be US
sites only but what about us hosted sites or other nationality sites hosting
us businesses? I found this article on 8/24/98 on hotwired site. It
seems that patents are now allowed for online businesses models. Net
auction has also done this. Are we now going to pay royalties to everyone?
Pat
