+ - Appeals court ruling could be the 'death' of software patents in the US->

Submitted by symbolset
symbolset (646467) writes "On Friday the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled that four patents held by electronic marketplace Alice are too abstract for patentability. In her dissent Judge Kimberly Moore wrote of the ruling in CLS Bank v. Alice: "And let's be clear: if all of these claims, including the system claims, are not patent-eligible, this case is the death of hundreds of thousands of patents, including all business method, financial system, and software patents as well as many computer implemented and telecommunications patents." The case will doubtless be appealed to the Supreme Court."
