AOL Loses on Advertising Wins With Patent

While they say they have no plans to do anything with it at this point, imagine what would happen if they did. Interestingly, they also have patents to Cookies and SSL (guards online transaction).

What's to stop AOL from cashing in on this with huge fees to make up for their current financial woes?
