Microsoft Gets Timely Patent for Filtering Swear Words

Microsoft Gets Timely Patent for Filtering Swear Words
Talk about good timing. The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday heard oral arguments in the Fox TV v.

According to the article linked to above, "The invention is intended to act as ... More »

Reducing Chargebacks

Reducing Chargebacks

While entirely eliminating chargebacks is not possible, reducing and managing your chargeback rate certa... More »

After the Sale

After the Sale

2000 Charge Offers International Solutions
