Change needed in patenting process


In my somewhat short time with BlackBerry Cool, I’ve covered more than my fair share of patent disputes. There’s been a bunch involving RIM, some with NTP, some with Palm, some with both of the previous mentioned up against one another, and we even touched on the whole iPhone debacle between Cisco and Apple.

Well, with that in mind, it was nice to see BusinessWeek put together this great piece on how there needs to be some changes in the way the patenting process works and that the Supreme Court, Congress, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) and even the private sector want to see the same. A great read. Check it out.
