This Sep 11 onwards, Ecommerce will get easier

If you are wondering what’s going to change this Sep 11, well Amazon’s 1-click checkout patent will expire, paving the way for others to ease up the ecommerce experience.

The application was filed in 1997 and granted in 1999. In September 1999, Amazon sued Barnes & Noble for using a one-click checkout feature on its website, and ultimately won an injunction that forced the bookseller to add more steps to the checkout process on barnesandnoble.com.
