Fantastic news. Oracle patened "self service system for website publishing."
"The web site system permits a site administrator to construct the overall structure, design and style of the web site. This allows for a comprehensive design as well as a common look and feel for the web site. The web site system permits content for the web site to originate from multiple content contributors. The publication of content is controlled by content owners. This permits assignment of content control to those persons familiar with the content." This patent was filed in March, 2000; prior art should, one would think, be relatively easy to find.


Congratulations Oracle for creating a patent that puts 90% of the web in violation. Your shareholders must be jizzing in their pants.
