Submission + - Clarity on UK software patents?

An anonymous reader writes: The BBC is reporting that the UK IPO is to appeal a high court ruling allowing grant of a Symbian patent application. Originally refused by the UK IPO, the high court ruling over turned this decision and highlighted the growing divide between UK IPO and EPO case law. Having a solid judgement from the House of Lords could really help to shape the future landscape of patent law across Europe. Fingers crossed that they see sense.

You can read the application GB0325145.1 which was published as GB2407655. Remember this is the application and the granted claims may be of a different scope, for example compare to the granted EPO version EP1678607 B1.
