+ - High court ruling bad news for patent trolls?

Submitted by mrleemrlee
mrleemrlee (192314) writes "The Supreme Court has ruled against a company that held a patent on adjustable-brake pedals, and in the process, invalidated a test that's been used to determine the "obviousness" of an invention. It will make it tougher to meet the test, and could invalidate thousands of patents on small improvements in existing inventions. Full opinion: here."
