Microsoft applied for patent to RSS

Can an existing, in use technology can be patented?


David Berlind has written an interesting article about Microsoft's Patent saga of RSS.

Microsoft has applied to patent RSS - the Internet Content syndication system, which everybody is using since long!

The case looks similar in nature - A commercial firm tried to patent Anti-Bacterial-Properties of a herb called turmeric, which is known and in use by Indians since ages!

It is quite unlikely that this patent will be granted to Microsoft.
