Summary:
In April of this year, the Free Software Foundation through its End Software Patents (ESP) campaign filed an amicus brief http://endsoftpatents.org/bilski to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) in their en banc hearing of in re Bilski, describing the hearing as "an historic opportunity to fix the US patent system, as the Bilski rehearing will directly address the boundaries of the subject matter of patents." On October 30, 2008 the CAFC issued its ruling, and in it ESP sees a victory on the path to ending software patents.
