Amazon's disputable patent granted in 1999, the 1-Click patent is summarized in a direct manner: "A method and system for placing an order to purchase an item via the Internet."

The patent in spite of its stiff introduction has helped to open the internet to droves of shoppers by giving the customers of Amazon.com the luxury of purchasing goods with just a click. It has also served as a signal that led to the awareness of the problem with the US patent system that just too many and too broad patents were easily appoved.

With the patent expired on 12th September 2017, Tuesday, the change could change the way how online payments can be made. Due to the existence of the Amazon 1-Click Patent, the online shopping experience has been confusing and tedious in the past years back. Its patent expiration can now allow sites to be able to get their hands on the 1-Click technology without having to pay licensing fees to Amazon. This can lead to a more consistent experience wherever one may go for online shopping now.

Amazon's 1-Click patent was filed in 1997 and was granted in September 1999 during the years when many people were untrustful about buying anything online and are in disbelief of the benefits it could provide to online shoppers. Amazon intended to use the technology to suade more people into purchasing stuffs online while at the same time using the technology to stand above all other rivals. Amazon sued Barnes & Noble the month after the technology was granted to avoid them from using a similar technology on Barnes & Noble's website. Apple started licensing the 1-Click technology in 2000 to power Apple.com and iTunes to let customers to have an easy experience purchasing laptops or new songs.

Mobile web shopping could start seeing improvements as increasing numbers of retailers can include simpler payment systems. Functions like shopping cart abandonment, the term for shopper adding items into their virtual shopping carts but without a completed purchase, is everywhere on mobile.

The bulk of online shopping is done via PC shopping could be made simpler thanks to a plan involving Google, Apple and Facebook. This project would allow customers to add payments inofrmation into their web browsers and these credentials could be used at any other participating websites. This process is speculated to be even faster than auto-filling payments and shipping data.

Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos in 2000 addressed the strong disagreement around the 1-Click technology. He suggested that patents should have shorter lifespans and stated that Amazon's competitive advantage will be coming from better "service, price and selection." However, Jeff Bezos declined to give up on the 1-Click patent.

沃尔玛百货有限公司由美国零售业的传奇人物山姆 • 沃尔顿先生于1962年在阿肯色州成立。经过五十多年的发展,沃尔玛公司已经成为世界最大的私人雇主和连锁零售商,多次荣登《财富》杂志世界500强榜首及当选最具价值品牌。 沃尔玛致力通过实体零售店、在线电子商店、以及移动设备移动端等不同平台不同方式来帮助世界各地的人们随时随地能够节省开支,并生活得更好。 沃尔玛在2016年10月提交了一项关于物联网的美国专利申请号US15-297426。该专利的申请标题为物联网上的零售订阅(Retail subscription in internet of things environment)。这项专利将物联网标签加到基于蓝牙射频识别红外NFC或其他技术的产品之上。 这项专利最直接的功能是可以帮客户自动续订购。沃尔玛不需要按下实体按钮,而是全自动操作。这项功能看似方便,但站在顾客角度很少人会选择这自动订购原因是顾客都喜好尝试不同类别的产品。 除此之外,这项专利随着客户的购买行为,该物联网系统还可以为沃尔玛收集有价值的消费者数据信息,比如说产品的使用频率,产品的使用时间。这些市场客户资料让沃尔玛更了解客户的需求。 沃尔玛注册这项专利的目标指向亚马逊公司的 “一键购买”(One-click buying)方式的服务。在1999年美国专利商标局,通过了亚马逊 “一键购买”(One-click buying)美国专利受权号US5960411的专利技术申请。当是引起了很大的争议,因为任何人想在网上卖东西,都被这项专利禁止使用 “一键购买”(One-click buying)的选项。 然而,这一类的购物模式虽然看起来简单,但却被亚马逊捷足先登申请了这项专利许可,任何人想要使用这项功能都必须支付专利费给亚马逊。以此为例苹果公司(Apple Inc)就向亚马逊买了这项专利许可,并将起用在iTune商店里。 亚马逊在“一键购买”的服务取得成功,主要是这项发明成功获得专利,并阻止竟争者使用这项专利。尽管这并不是复杂的发明,但专利申请却让“一键购买”成为专属服务。 随着电商业的发展,线下零售一直不断遭受打击。与亚马逊等电商相比,沃尔玛在线下庞大的实体店和仓库网络是它的优势。无论是在科技领域或是传统产业领域,企业核心竟争力都是知识产权。知识产权可帮助企业确定并维护自己专有市场优势,这是知识产权带来的好处。 寻求知识产权的专业人士及律师的协助,有助于提高专利申请的成功率,并且为企业带来更高的利润。
