Patent Obviousness

Filed under: Patents — Jared @ 11:50 am

Apparently the Supreme Court is going to hear a case involoving the application of “obviousness” to patents (i.e. the idea is an obvious combination of two previously known things, and is therefore unpatentable). Go read the blurb on Ars.

I can’t be happier that they’re going to hear such a case, and I pray that they find properly. My real hope is that this will have a dramatic effect on biotechnology, and invalidate some of the dumber patents out there.
