U.S. Supreme Court to decide whether software can be patented

http://j.mp/1bNpcBS  (Reuters - No, not BS!)

   "The court said in a one-line order that it would hear a case brought
    by Alice Corporation Pty Ltd, which holds a patent for a computer
    system that facilitates financial transactions. The patent is
    challenged by CLS Bank International. The court took no action on
    another case raising the same issue involving a patent dispute between
    WildTangent Inc, and Ultramercial Inc.  Google Inc, Hewlett-Packard
    Co, Facebook Inc and Netflix Inc are among those that signed on to
    friend-of-the court briefs urging that the court intervene."
