Guest Blogging on IP Watchdog

IPWatchdog.com published a guest blog entry from me yesterday in which I argue that the "wishes" I talk about in The Genie in the Machine should be patentable. This kind of discussion is particularly important to have right now, in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to hear the Bilski case. A flawed decision in that case could set back patent protection for software and for computer-generated inventions for years, if not decades.
