Summary:
Netcraft sued eBay and PayPal for infringement of its patents that cover an "internet billing method." During claim construction, the Western District of Wisconsin found that the limitation of "providing a communications link through equipment of the third party" requires that an infringer "provid[e] customers with internet access." Of course, eBay and PayPal do not provide internet access.
