E-Commerce Times Talkback

Barnesandnoble.com scored a legal victory over rival e-tailer Amazon.com when the U.S.
Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. lifted a preliminary injunction that had barred
Barnesandnoble.com from using one-click Web shopping technology. In its ruling, the court
said that Barnesandnoble.com "raised substantial questions as to the validity" of Amazon's
1-Click patent, which allows returning customers to buy a product without repeatedly
filling out personal information.
as much as i enjoy shopping on amazon's site, i am quite pleased that there will be some uniformity (hopefully towards that end) in the world of online commerce. there are other sites out there that allow for one-click shopping, so no amazon does not have the corner market on the one-click. taking their case up against Barnes & Noble is to no one's advantage. Amazon should see itself as a big brother and not as the next-door bully.
