Submission + - Apple patent monkeywrenches Facebook plans->

bizwriter writes: A new patent awarded to Apple has the potential of locking Facebook out of an important area of growth: using credits to acquire such "media items" as songs, videos, images, e-books and podcasts. The definition of "digital asset" also raises questions of whether Zynga's virtual goods — the mainstay of its revenue — would also fall under this patent. Even payment systems like Bitcoin could run into trouble.
