Well, that was quick. The jury in a patent lawsuit
against eight companies that use "interactive web" technologies has found the Eolas Technologies patent to be invalid, according to a report
at ars technica. "[Tim] Berners-Lee took to Twitter to cheer the decision. 'Texas jury agreed Eolas 906 patent invalid,' he wrote. 'Good thing too!'
Companies that depend on the open Web hailed the verdict. 'We are pleased that the court found the patents invalid, as it affirms our assertion that the claims are without merit,' a Google spokesperson told Ars.
