Patent Office re-examines early claim for browser-object embedding

O’Reilly Network: PTO Director Orders Re-Exam for ‘906 Patent. “In what could be good news for the Web, the Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office has ordered a re-examination of the ‘906 patent, which was the subject of a patent infringement lawsuit this summer brought by Eolas against Microsoft.” Linked from Tomalak’s Realm

Good news, I think. A patent restriction could be really damaging for many browser manufacturers, and the claim appears to be dubious.
