Munich, 7 December 2007 -- The European Patent Office (EPO) has revoked the US firm Amazon's patent relating to a "method for placing an order via a computer system" after a hearing in opposition proceedings. Having heard all of the parties, the opposition division handling the case concluded today that the invention did not meet the patentability requirements under the European Patent Convention (EPC). The patent had been opposed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Informatik, Fleurop and the Foundation for Free Information Infrastructure (FFII).
