Interesting IT Patent News about EBay

There is a patent case pending with EBay which could potentially impact its' ability to offer one of the versions of their auctions, the "Buy It Now" auctions. There was also an interesting article in the NY Times within the last few weeks discussing the increase in EBay fees to store owners and how some people have or are strongly considering moving their stores from EBay to another provider or building their own websites.

If you ever use EBay to purchase computer parts or software for your law firm at an attractive price from some of the on-line stores located there, this might be of interest.....
