On The Bright Side, Software Patents Don’t Seem Very Strong In Court

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Oct 16, 2010.

  1. Someone has done a survey of all the litigation around software patents
    <http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20100924/02132911143/vast-majority-of-software-patents-in-lawsuits-lose.shtml>,
    and come up with some surprising results: most of the time, the patent is
    not upheld by the court. It also seems like a patent that may have been
    upheld in one court case is still likely to be struck down in the next one.

    This would be good news for those who are the victims of such patent suits,
    except for the fact that it’s so expensive to take it to court in the first
    place. That’s why companies would rather settle than fight.
