The 361 patent refers to technology that enables a search engine (like Yahoo or Google) to charge advertisers according to the effectiveness of their ad placement.  It's a significant enabler for the search engines, and Yahoo purchased the patent for 1.63 billion dollars.  It is a matter of legal dispute because Google has used the technology without license.
