End Software Patents II

For those of you who read my blog posting on ending software patents, you might want to read the overview from several people on what happened at the Courthouse for this case. The link is http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20080508231813484.

The case is State Street Bank vs  Signature Financial Group and involves the following:

From the Electronic Frontier Foundation: “An appellate court case that provides an opportunity to eliminate business method patents and curtail efforts to claim monopolies on basic human skills, behaviors, and interactions. Bilski is challenging the rejection of his application for a patent on a method of managing the risk of bad weather through commodities trading.”
