Revised Paul Allen lawsuit continues to show what's wrong with tech patents

"Four months after filing a laughably broad patent lawsuit against a Who's Who of tech companies--and only weeks after a judge tossed out its complaint for being too vague--Paul Allen's Interval Licensing is at it again.

The Seattle corporation, the surviving entity of the defunct Interval Research firm set up by the Microsoft co-founder in the mid 1990s, filed a revised complaint Tuesday against AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples, Yahoo and YouTube."
