"Earlier today I posted an article titled Federal Circuit Decides Software No Longer Patentable, and many disagreed both with my conclusion that software is no longer patentable, and my analysis that State Street has been overruled. Everyone is free to have their own opinion, but there is simply no room for argument on this. The Federal Circuit has overruled State Street and software patents are no longer available as they have come to be available over the last 10 to 15 years. If you do not agree with these points then you obviously have not read the decision and I suggest that you read the decision before you tell me that I am wrong. I have thick skin, but reality is quite important to me."
