Summary:
The company reckons that it will be able to milk Internet giants like the Vole and Google for hundreds of millions, but intellectual property lawyers are not so sure. Although the company does seem to have a patent in Australia, New Zealand and even the US for "locating web pages by utilising visual images", any court which enforced it would be changing the whole essence of the Internet. Clicking on, scrolling over, or even streaming graphics which connect with a website or web page would become an infringement of patent.
