It looks like the software patent cold war that we were in is over, and we’re now moving into a software patent hot war. Ars Technica has a piece on Paul Allen’s IP holding company suing 11 big internet giants. This comes after a number of large patent suits, including Oracle v Google, Nokia v Apple, Apple v HTC.
I’m hoping that we actually get another case in front of the supreme court for them to rethink punting on deciding on software patents.
