Summary:
Dr. John Collins, Partner at Marks & Clerk, commented: "This is an important step on the road to harmonising UK and Europe’s approach to software patentability. Software developers in the UK who had previously faced a much narrower interpretation of what could be patented should welcome this news. The ‘technical test’ has been placed back at the heart of the UK approach, which is particularly crucial in the case of ‘pure software’ – implementing technical solutions to technical problems that don’t extend beyond the computer itself."
