! Warning: this post hasn't been updated in over three years and so may contain out of date information.Back in October, I reported on Amazon’s defeat by a Lord of the Rings actor.

This time it was the trusty FFII who successfully challenged Amazon. The patent was “a method in a computer system for co-ordinating delivery of a gift from a gift giver to a recipient, the gift and recipient being specified in a gift order”.
