Suit Hits Amazon, Target

Two early Internet inventors charged Amazon.com and Target with infringing on their patents.
In a suit filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, John Klug and Thad Peterson, doing business as Registrar Systems, claim that Amazon.com's e-commerce technology platform improperly uses their system.
Krug and Peterson received U.S. Patent No. 5,790,785 in 1998 and No. 6,823,327 in 2004. Both related to the storage and registration of information for processing on computers and for use on the Web.
