October 11, 2009 - It was announced last week that Eolas Technologies, a technology research firm, had filed suit against several major companies, including Adobe Systems, Apple, Google, eBay, Amazon.com and more.

Eolas claims the defendants are infringing two of their patents: one for allowing embedded applications in Web browsers, and the second a continuation of the first and relating to the use of plug-ins and AJAX (asynchronous JavaScript and XML).

The patent survived a lawsuit against Microsoft that lasted for years and ended in a settlement for an undisclosed amount.
