LXer: Microsoft and free software movement tag team at the Supreme Court

Published at LXer:

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Microsoft v. AT&T concerning liability for patent infringement for the distribution of software outside of the United States. Although the case is officially about arcane details of a 1984 revision to patent law, the decision could have broader significance if it helps to shed light on the patentability of software, a question the Supreme Court hasn't addressed in a quarter century.
