GoDaddy’s latest patent applications
I realize all large corporations play the patent game. However, Godaddy put a patent on every idea that comes up at GD, even if that idea has been used by other registrars or hosting companies for years. In some industries, a company’s value is partially based on how many patents they have. If it was not for their patents, Blackberry would have been gone 2-3 yrs ago. I guess Godaddy is trying to cover all bases for Wall St. If Godaddy was a small candy store that hand-made chocolate candies, they would apply for a patent if the candy maker made it with their right hand. And, another patent if they made the candy with their left hand. And, another one if their right foot was closer to the candy than the left foot. etc, etc.
