Changes in Patent Policy

For those of you out there who know a lot more about this than I do, I found this interesting piece in the HuffPo on recent Supreme Court rulings on patents. I think everyone agrees that patent policy has not kept up with the changing landscape of innovation and technology. It seems that the courts are ever so slowly moving in the right direction, in two instances: interpreting patents in terms of the right to earn a royalty rather than the right to monopoly, and making patents more difficult to obtain, particularly on innovations that would be obvious to a person of ordinary skills in the industry.
