Does your site use frames or tabbed navigation?

If so, SBC may be coming after you.

This is just assinine. As this linked article points out:

"Just in case you're not fully up on reading patent language, that means that if your Web site uses frames, and there's a navigation frame on one side, with links that load content into the main frame -- you're violating their silly patent, and they can come after you for licensing fees."

just another one of many reasons that frames are evil.

This seems totally preposterous. That being said, bring it on I have a corporate Attorney too. To even let someone or a company have a patent on something like tabbed navigation of frames is stupid, and the whole patent process should be looked at at length.

What has this world come to? I'm glad I hate frames. Some search engines won't index them anyway. At least it used to be that way.
