Patent busters score win as virtual subdomain patent revoked

17 06 2009

A patent for virtual subdomains is being revoked by the US Patent and Trademark office thanks to prior work provided by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The Office announced its decision today, noting that it rejected all of patent owner Hoshiko’s claims since the patent went under examination in 2007.

The patent in question was originally submitted to the USPTO in 1999 by an IP holding company  named Ideaflood and somehow managed to get approved in 2004. (The patent eventually got transferred to a new company named Hoshiko.)
