UK High Court Allows Computer Program Patent Claims

Thanks to the IP Kat for pointing to the "surprising turn of events" where the Honourable Mr Justice Kitchin has ruled that the current UK Patent Office practice of flatly rejecting patent claims to computer program products is wrong. The judgment, in the matter of several GB patent applications in the name of Astron Clinica and others, is not yet available on BAILII, but the IPKat is making it available to his readers here at least until it is.

Catch up with the issues from the IPKat's previous posts here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here (to cite just a few).
