Re: errrrr there's more to a patent than its title.
I've just looked at the patent claims linked in the article.
They relate to a system where an order is remotely sent to a processing system that then records data to a CD-R and prints an address label.
1. I wrote the software for just such a system back in about 2001, the patent claims could be taken from the proposal we wrote for the customer.
2. At the time this 'method' would have been obvious to anyone with the barest glimmer of wit. It would never have occurred to me that I had invented something worthy of a patent.
3. This system (recording to CD-Rs) is now obsolete.
Ergo, these patents are ridiculous.
