From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "Embodiments generally relate to interacting with web content, and particularly to copying web content selections.
"Web applications are applications that can be hosted within a web browser or those that can be accessed, for example, over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. Web applications are increasing in popularity due to the ubiquity of web browsers and the convenience of using a web browser as a client.
"Web applications and other interactive web content are often constructed and rendered in a browser using Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) and associated scripts. Using mark-up languages such as HTML 5, it is possible to build rich in-browser applications (e.g., image editors). Web applications, such as image editors, enable users to view and edit content (e.g., photographs) within their web browser. Other web applications enable users to read books displayed as scanned images. However, users are unable to copy content selections (e.g., cropped image regions or interactive content) rendered within these web applications to a system clipboard."
Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "A method of copying web content selections includes detecting an intent to copy a selected region in a web content area, drawing an image representing the selected region into an image canvas, the image canvas based on dimensions of the selected region, storing the image in a data structure referenced by a browser image element, and changing a browser selection range to point to the data structure storing the image representing the selected region, wherein the image can be embedded into at least one content area distinct from the web content area.
"A system for copying web content selections includes a first module configured to detect an intent to copy a selected region in a web content area, a second module configured to draw an image representing the selected region into an image canvas, the image canvas based on dimensions of the selected region, a third module configured to store the image in a data structure referenced by a browser image element, and a fourth module configured to change a browser selection range to point to the data structure storing the image representing the selected region, wherein the image can be embedded into at least one content area distinct from the web content area.
"Further embodiments, features, and advantages of the embodiments, as well as the structure and operation of the various embodiments are described in detail below with reference to accompanying drawings."
