Short Take: E-Data appeals patent ruling

As expected, E-Data has appealed a ruling that had effectively killed the company's chances of winning a closely watched patent infringement suit against some of the biggest names in e-commerce. E-Data, which claims its patent covers the selling of software online, argued that a federal judge in New York City erred when she issued an opinion that severely limited the scope of the patent. A decision from the appeals court is not expected for at least six months.
