The recent decision by the Supreme Court of the United States overturning a ruling against Microsoft is going to ease patent restrictions. Peter Kaplan of CIO Insight quotes Lecturer in Law Thomas Goldstein:

Thomas Goldstein, a lawyer for Teleflex, said the decision would affect trillions of dollars in investments in intellectual property.

"There will be a surge in patent fights during the struggle to decide exactly how tough the justices intend to be on securing a patent," Goldstein predicted.
