The IPKat thinks that, on first reading, the judgment does not appear to really change anything. However, the UK-IPO will inevitably now have to change its mind on how it deals with software patents, and will now be confronted with frustrated applicants who will have some serious ammunition to use against refusals under Section 1(2). The result of this decision will therefore have the effect (presumably desired) that the pendulum will be swinging back towards applicants for software patents in the UK, and away from those who would prefer to shut down the possibility of software being patentable in any guise.
