I am tired of the scientifically-ignorant polluting patent caselaw, especially judges who seem to have forgotten much that they learned at MIT. Leave the logical contradictions and vagueness to copyright lawyers – let’s face it, there is nothing more utterly, hopelessly, fatally, nonsensically vague as 17 USC 102 a AND b – and for any open source lawyers reading this, there is actually a 17 USC 102b.
The rest of the book review:
Eminent scientists, philosophers and theologians come together in this anthology to chart this shift in thinking. After describing the historical development of theories of quantum, biological and digital information, they contrast biological and physical approaches to information and examine the philosophical and ethical implications of the concept.
The patent world should be having such debates, WITH JUDGES IN THE AUDIENCE, not on the panels. Time for the judges to learn something about what they are guessing about in their opinions (which I blame on the AIPLA not taking this issue seriously).
