  1. Re: Patent

    U.S. Patent No. 8,301,466

    http://www.patentbuddy.com/Patent/8301466

    The patent intro reads:

    … A method for providing a user with the ability to access and collect records associated with the user in a secure and private manner includes associating access information with the user for the user to use to access a server storing files comprising records associated with the user in a computer readable storage medium, providing the user with a user interface on a computing device to remotely access the records stored on the server, receiving at the server the files comprising records associated with the user from a service provider associated with the user, receiving at the server a request from the user made through the user interface of the computing device for access to the files, wherein the access information is associated with the request, and sending the user a file containing the records associated with user from the server to the computing device in response to the request.

    My question is: how does one get a patent on what seems like an area with decades of “prior art” in existence?
