Amazon. com’s patent application for its ‘one-click’ invention has been allowed by the Canadian IP Office.
Less than two months after the much anticipated decision of the Federal Court of Appeal (FCA) in Canada (Attorney General) v Amazon.com, Inc, Amazon. com’s patent application for its ‘one-click’ business method invention has been allowed by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, and issued on January 17, 2012.
Amazon.com’s ‘one-click’ patent essentially claims a client-server system that permits storage of customer information in a ‘cookie’ on a customer’s computer, and allows subsequent purchases to be completed with a single mouse click.
