Eolas prior art
Perry Pei-Yuan Wei has an excellent page about prior art for the Eolas patent, his Viola web browser.
"I was not allowed to demonstrate Viola to the jury. It was explained to me that the judge had decided that my demonstration, of the Viola browser from May 1993 showing interactive objects embedded in a web page, would have been too "prejudicial" against Eolas."
