Earlier this month, I traveled to Tyler, Texas to cover the Eolas patent trial. Eolas is a patent-holding company, together with the University of California, filed a lawsuit against more than 20 companies claiming it owned patent rights to the entire “interactive” World Wide Web–essentially the whole modern web.
The four-part series published at Wired.com includes:
- An overview of the trial and its importance
- The testimony of Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web
- Closing arguments
- The jury’s verdict, which invalidated the two Eolas patents
