A Month of Search Patents

By - March 31, 2004

Gary has his patent roundup posted, and it has more interesting stuff.

There’s a patent application for serving ads in email – from employees of Google. Overture gets a patent for search sets. Other search related patents go to Seibel, AT&T, Yahoo, IBM, et al.

My favorite: “Method of doing business by identifying customers of competitors through world wide web searches of job listing databases” – from IBM.
