Submission + - Court Makes It Easier To Dump Software Patents (techdirt.com)

An anonymous reader writes: While software patents are still legal, it appears that the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC), sometimes known as the nation's "patent court" has just made a decision that will make it much easier to reject software patents for being mere "mental processes" rather than an actual invention. This could allow the Patent Office and the courts to reject many software patents.
