Summary:
For what it’s worth, my guess is that this time next year we will basically have seen the end of business method patents in the US and tighter restrictions placed on software patents. Essentially, things will be a lot more like they are in Europe and everyone will wonder how the US ended up being so different for a decade or so. For the broader patent-owning community all this will come as quite a relief as it will mean the end of most of those “aren’t patents ridiculous?” stories based around dodgy software and business method grants that are so frequently used to discredit the patent system as a whole.
