"The German Federal Patent Court ruled to rescind Vistaprint’s controversial software patent, subject to paragraphs 99(1) PatG [Patent Act] and 709 ZPO [Code of Civil Procedure]. The verdict is now official and the judgment in question was published by the Court on March 25, 2009. The spokesperson from unitedprint.com SE, Andrea Fleischer stated: "The software sector can now breathe a sigh of relief. Vistaprint, online print shop with its registered office in the Bahamas, wanted to wall off its own market with Patent No. EP 0852 359 B1, whose description of technical processes attracted attention." The Federal Patent Court ruled in favor of Unitedprint and dismissed Vistaprint’s creative effort during the dispute."
