One-click becomes none-click

Amazon's 1997 patent on the 'one click' system has been successfully challenged by a New Zealander who has studied commercial law and lists 'American patents' as a hobby. Peter Calveley of Auckland discovered a prior claim. In 2005, Peter filed a challenge with the US Patent Office that has now overturned Amazon's patent. Amazon say they will appeal the decision.
