In reference to the patent: US6546397
This patent appears overly broad. Basically, it is saying anyone who creates a website that utilizes a database and a backend interface is infringing. I can think of many open source tools that fall in this category - wordpress for one. Any organization that has a website that utilizes a database and a backend editor, including companies like Facebook, Amazon, Apple, EBay, etc would all be infringing if this were an enforceable patent. This makes no sense.
