Real-time Financial Search Patent

Vhayu Technologies in Los Gatos has obtained a patent for real-time financial search. Best as I can glean from the filing, the company’s patent is for a technique linking real-time stock quotes to news and time. While that may not sound particularly new or distinctive, the patent is, to my mind, strategic in that depending on how well it is written it could be a difficult one to avoid in an important area.
