You probably know GoDaddy.com from the Superbowl commercials or maybe you have purchased a domain from the domain marketplace. Now the company that owns GoDaddy.com wants legal rights to be the only seller of business cards based on the information provided when you register that new domain.
The business cards GoDaddy.com wants you to purchase when registering your new domain are in the form of printed business cards or an electronic format that you can pass to others electronically. The company figures most website domains are purchased for business use and adding the business card service is an easy additional up-sell. Seems like a little bit a stretch to patent such a basic up-sell. The company hopes that having the only right for this common business product sales will give them an advantage over all online business card printers.
