High Court says UK-IPO was wrong to reject software-related patent

UPDATED: The High Court has overturned a decision of the UK Intellectual Property Office (UK-IPO) to reject a patent application as being nothing more than software.

The UK-IPO said that today's ruling is incompatible with other decisions and will appeal.

Note: The Symbian ruling had not been published at the time of writing but has since been made available.
