Supreme Court will take up messy software ruling from top patent court

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has advocated to limit broad software patents, but in this case it agreed with Alice that the Supreme Court should consider the case. However, the  EFF also argued that an even better case for considering the issues surrounding software patents would be the Ultramercial case, which also featured a patent nonetheless considered non-abstract by the Federal Circuit. The Ultramercial case is about a patent for online ad-viewing, and the EFF has been blasting away at it for years.
