Goodbye stupid software patents?

Mark Gibbs | June 23, 2014
The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Alice v. CLS Bank could make many of the ridiculous business-method and software patents invalid ... eventually.

So, it's not certain just how the law pertaining to software patents and their obviousness and applicability will evolve but with the judgement in Alice v. CLS Bank a small but important step forward has been made. This will hopefully bring some much needed rationality to the current supremely irrational patent system that will prevent large companies with deep pockets and lots of lawyers from continuing to extort money from smaller companies and, at the same time, stifle innovation.
