BT court date

Heehee. You have to admit they've got balls - or, perhaps, since they're British, bollocks.

A little background and summary: BT (British Telecommunications) discovered they actually hold a patent on the hyperlink. Yes, the little linky-thingy you all click on every web page everywhere. They announced they were going to start suing people for unauthorized use of it, and now they've gotten a court date for their suit against Prodigy.

It's somewhat like someone saying that they have a patent on, I dunno, electricity or something equally absurd.
