Default Re: Free Will: The Internet Age Edition

I realize this is a non-legal discussion of patents, but patents are not simply, as Tim says, "for physical objects or physical processes." State Street Bank, a case from the 90s, allows the patenting of business processes so long as those processes yield concrete results (however fleetingly).

That's why you could patent a non-physical process like a business process - 1-click.

Also, most software is actually copyrighted, and not patented.
