Verisign Patented What??

In yet another in a long list of examples why the US Patent Office is run by a pack of blathering morons, they’ve now granted hated Verisign a DNS Lookup Patent.  They already control what seems like half the internet and don’t give a damn when they screw up and give away peoples’ domains.  Now they can brandish this and try to beat others senseless.

And, of course, there’s no “prior-use” in this case at all.  Oh, except for UNIX.  Since the mid 80s.  Sheesh.
