Summary:
In a surprising (to this Kat at least) turn of events, the Honourable Mr Justice Kitchin has ruled today that the current UK Patent Office practice of flatly rejecting patent claims to computer program products is wrong. The judgment, in the matter of several GB patent applications in the name of Astron Clinica and others, is not yet available on BAILII, but the IPKat is making it available to his readers here at least until it is. Many thanks go to John Gray of Murgitroyd & Co. for passing the news on.
