Patents

theodp writes "This week's Official USPTO Gazette brings news that Apple has requested a reexamination of a patent granted to Premier International Investments LLC for a List Building System, which covers making, editing and displaying music and video playlists. Elsewhere in the same Gazette, the USPTO notes that it's ordered a reexamination of an Amazon patent for a Method and system for electronic commerce using multiple roles (i.e., providing multiple electronic shopping carts for each user) after determining that substantial new questions of patentability ('SNQ') had been raised."
