Paralegal's Commentary on Court's Patent Ruling

Yeah, this news is about an important ruling by the Supremes, but it's also very nice to see an experienced paralegal being quoted: "When the Supreme Court of the United States ruled for KSR in the case of KSR Int'l Co. v. Teleflex Inc. [link added], it also served notice to the software industry that major changes may be afoot in both the granting and protecting of existing software patents. "For several years now, software patents have frequently been seen by many as stifling innovation, granting intellectual property claims for ideas that had been around for decades and awarding the...

"Patently Obvious?"

Another excellent post to Legal Blog Watch by lawyer & blogger Robert J. Ambrogi [links listed below from original post]: "Tons of reaction among bloggers to yesterday's Supreme Court ruling in KSR v. Teleflex. Rather than attempt to summarize it all, I offer these samples. More on the impact of KSR. KSR v. Teleflex: The Supreme Court's Big Patent Ruling. Is there Sarbanes-Oxley Fallout from KSR v. Teleflex? Supreme Court to Patent Appeals Court: Drop Dead. Supreme Court Adopts New Standard on Patent Litigation."

"Google launches search engine for US patents"

This news from Google sure sounds smart to me. But will patent paralegals be impressed? "Google was live [12/14/2006] with a service enabling Internet users to search through the more than seven million patents granted in the United States. "The beta, or test, version of Google Patent Search lets people sift through patents granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office as long ago as 1790 by using inventors' names, filing dates, patent numbers or key words. "Searches return information about the inventor and provide patent details online page-by-page." I've never worked in this field, but was completely fascinated by... Read more →
