Summary:
This decision will have implications for India given the propensity of Indian Courts to follow English decisions. As of now Section 3(k) of the Patent Act deems both computer programs and business methods as inventions which are not patentable. Section 3(k) as most of you must know was one of the few victories scored by the Communist Parties when the Government was attempting to get the 3rd Amendment to the Patent Act passed in both Houses of Parliament in 2005.
