Patent Absurdity – How software patents broke the system

“Patent Absurdity explores the case of software patents and the history of judicial activism that led to their rise, and the harm being done to software developers and the wider economy. The film is based on a series of interviews conducted during the Supreme Court’s review of in re Bilski — a case that could have profound implications for the patenting of software.”

Unfortunately (from the first EFF link bellow): “the Supreme Court’s ruling eroded the CAFC’s limits on process patents and thus missed an opportunity to fix some of the problems with those patents.”
