Who knows what this patent actually covers, it melts the mind trying to read this stuff.

From https://www.google.com/patents/US20130173416

For example, claim 18:

18. The non-transitory machine-readable medium of claim 17, wherein the operation further comprise:
determining whether the code is valid; and
providing access to the digital version of the analog good based on the code being valid.


Something to do with digital versions of analog goods.  

Edit:  looks like this topic is a duplicate of one from yesterday:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=508016.0

So when eBay starts using this to take down Bitcoin exchanges, is Bitcoin Foundation going to:

1) Use all those donations it got to fund legal challenges to get the patent overturned, or,
2) Urge every Bitcoin business to start paying to license the patent from eBay

3) Keep sleeping as they comfortably do already.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)

C. IDK what my bf will do, but I would wallpaper my apartment with C&D letters and stay distributed.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Marcus (PayPal president David Marcus) believes that PayPal may involve itself with bitcoin in the future, when the time is right for his company to do so.

Donahoe (CEO of eBay John Donahoe) says his company is currently working on implementing bitcoin for PayPal users.

They don't seem to be doing much at the moment, but at least they are pretending to be interested in bitcoins
